HEAVENLY CHICKEN



Yep, it's heavenly delicious alright!! I had not made this recipe in years as I am not one to often cook with boxed sodium filled items but sometimes you reminisce on the deliciousness of Thanksgiving and want the ease of something similar without all the work. 
Yum  



Or you simply want to try something new with chicken. The latter is how I was when I first made this year's ago and it was a huge it. Plus, if you're sick of turkey and want to use up leftover stuffing, this would be a great meal to whip up after a day of Christmas decorating or shopping! I often find myself pulling out these hearty comfort food recipes around the holidays and making this reminded me what a keeper it is! 



What You'll Need


HEAVENLY CHICKEN
Ingredients
1 1/2 to 2 lbs boneless Chicken breasts
2 cups Monterey Jack shredded cheese 
1 box Stovetop Stuffing (I use reduced sodium)
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 Tablespoons butter
1 Can Cream of Chicken (I use the Healthy Request) 
1/3 cup milk

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place Chicken breasts in a 8x8 baking dish. Top with cheese. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, Sauté onions in the butter. Finish off stuffing as directed in box (or use leftover from Thanksgiving) Spread prepared stuffing over the cheese. Mix the cream of chicken and milk in a small bowl until blended and spread evenly over the stuffing. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake covered for 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 30 minutes until golden on top.

  14. Oh good heavens, that does look heavenly. I had something very similar to this on my Rodan + Fields trip back in October that was delicious (I think the only diff was it had wine in it). I've been wanting to make it ever since. Sometimes you've just got to have some good ol' fashion comfort food and this fits the bill my gourmet friend! Happy Tuesday!!! XOXO
