Easy Chicken Dinner
This is a one of our favorite go-to easy chicken dinners. It’s quick, easy, and is a great option for those nights that you don’t know what to make for dinner. Crispy on top and creamy in the center, it’s a real comfort dish, and even better the next day if you have leftovers…we rarely do!
The ingredients in this delicious chicken bake are easy to keep on hand. I always keep extra Stove Top stuffing mix and canned creamed soup on hand to make this recipe at a moment’s notice. I also keep plenty of frozen chicken breasts in the freezer. I can whip this together and have it ready to go into the oven in a flash. After you make this easy chicken dinner casserole a few times, it’ll become as quick and easy for you to make, too!

How to Handle Chicken Safely
- Fresh Chicken: Chicken is kept cold during distribution to retail stores to prevent the growth of bacteria and to increase its shelf life. Chicken should feel cold to the touch when purchased. Select fresh chicken just before checking out at the register. Put packages of chicken in disposable plastic bags (if available) to contain any leakage which could cross-contaminate cooked foods or produce. Make the grocery store your last stop before going home.
At home, immediately place chicken in a refrigerator that maintains a temperature of 40 °F (4.4 °C) or below. Use it within 1 or 2 days, or freeze it at 0 °F (-17.8 °C). If kept frozen continuously, it will be safe indefinitely.
Chicken may be frozen in its original packaging or repackaged. If freezing chicken longer than 2 months, overwrap the porous store plastic packages with airtight heavy-duty foil, plastic wrap, or freezer paper, or place the package inside a freezer bag. Use these materials or airtight freezer containers to freeze the chicken from opened packages or repackage family packs of chicken into smaller amounts.
Proper wrapping prevents “freezer burn,” which appears as grayish-brown leathery spots and is caused by air reaching the surface of food. Cut freezer-burned portions away either before or after cooking the chicken. Heavily freezer-burned products may have to be discarded because they may be too dry or tasteless.
