Rotisserie Chicken and Stuffing Casserole is a comforting and delicious dish that combines tender rotisserie chicken with flavorful stuffing. Here’s a recipe and some tips to help you make this tasty casserole:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cooked rotisserie chicken, shredded or chopped
  • 4 cups prepared stuffing (you can use store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (such as peas, carrots, and corn)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cooked rotisserie chicken, prepared stuffing, frozen mixed vegetables, dried thyme, dried sage, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
  3. Spread the chicken and stuffing mixture evenly in the greased baking dish.

  5. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the top of the casserole.
  6. Cover the baking dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  7. After 30 minutes, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through, and the cheese is melted and lightly golden.
  8. Remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
  9. Serve the Rotisserie Chicken and Stuffing Casserole as a comforting main dish, accompanied by a side salad or steamed vegetables, if desired.

Cook’s Tips:

  1. Rotisserie Chicken: Using pre-cooked rotisserie chicken adds convenience and flavor to the casserole. Remove the skin and bones from the chicken and shred or chop the meat into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Stuffing: You can use store-bought stuffing mix or prepare your own stuffing according to the package instructions. If using a seasoned stuffing mix, adjust the amount of additional herbs and spices added to the casserole accordingly.
  3. Mixed Vegetables: Frozen mixed vegetables work well in this casserole, but you can also use fresh vegetables if preferred. Just make sure to cook them slightly before adding them to the casserole to ensure they are tender.
  4. Seasoning: Feel free to adjust the herbs and spices to suit your taste preferences. You can add other herbs like rosemary or parsley for additional flavor.
  5. Cheese: Cheddar cheese adds a delicious melty topping to the casserole, but you can use other types of cheese like mozzarella or Monterey Jack if desired.
  6. Make-Ahead Option: You can assemble the casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it until ready to bake. Just be sure to increase the baking time slightly to ensure it is heated through.

Rotisserie Chicken and Stuffing Casserole is a hearty and satisfying dish that’s perfect for using up leftover chicken or as a comforting meal during the colder months. Enjoy!
