Recipe of the Week...Firehouse Chicken

Some of my favorite recipes come from cookbooks that I've collected through the years, which have been compiled and sold by churches and schools. (Church ladies and school ladies sure know how to cook!!) Although I normally "tweak" a recipe to suit my taste, I have found that the tried-n-true recipes in these cookbooks are usually no fail and big hits with my family. The recipe that I'm sharing with you this week comes from a cookbook that was compiled by the PTA at the elementary school that my son attended from 1995 to 2001. The name "Firehouse Chicken" is a bit deceiving though, as this dish isn't spicy at all. Instead, it is chocked full of yummy chunks of chicken breast, a thick gravy, and a stuffing topping - a delicious, stick-to-your-ribs kinda meal!

  • 2 - 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Olive oil
  • Chicken broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 soup can of milk
  • 1 box chicken flavored stuffing mix
Pour 2 Tablespoons of olive oil into a glass baking dish and spread around. Add chicken to dish and rotate chicken to coat with olive oil. Bake chicken at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Remove chicken from oven and cut into bite-sized pieces.

Grease an 8 1/2" x 11" baking dish with butter and set aside. While chicken is cooking, prepare stuffing mix as directed on box, using chicken broth instead of water. (This makes the stuffing extra moist!) In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soup and milk to create a sauce texture. Pour soup mixture into bottom of buttered baking dish. Add cooked chicken breast pieces and spoon cooked stuffing over the top of soup/chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes until hot throughout. Serve with veggie and/or a salad.

Wishing you a WONDERFUL week!
