When it comes to dinner, I am all about quick and easy. As much as I love to cook and bake, I’m usually all worn out by the time dinner rolls around, and I just want something simple. This one pot chicken and stuffing skillet is so quick and easy to make, and full of flavor! It was a big hit with my whole family, and I love that it’s ready in less than 30 minutes, start to finish.
This recipe is actually one that I started making for my husband way back when we were little newlyweds, and I was just learning to cook. It’s so simple that even a novice chef can make it, and the ingredients are straightforward and relatively inexpensive. We hadn’t eaten it in years, and it was so fun to make it again and remember all those newlywed dinners!
I added some mushrooms to the recipe this time because they’re my husband’s favorite, and (surprisingly) both of my kids actually liked them! They’re totally optional if you’re not a mushroom fan, but they add some great flavor and depth to the dish.
This recipe is definitely comfort food at its best! The chicken is tender and juicy, and the flavors of the stuffing, chicken, and mushrooms blend deliciously. Give it a try on a busy weeknight, and I think you’ll love it too!
- 4 small chicken breasts, trimmed
- salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 box chicken flavored stuffing mix
- 4 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1½ cups water
- 1 package (8 ounces) mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
- 1 can (10 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
- ¼ cup sour cream
- ½ cup milk
- In a medium bowl, mix together the stuffing mix, butter, and water.
- Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook 5-6 minutes on each side, until lightly browned.
- When the chicken has browned, add the mushrooms to the skillet and cook until softened.
- Mix together the mushroom soup, sour cream, and milk, and pour the mixture over the chicken. Spread the stuffing mix over the top. Cover and cook 10-15 minutes on medium low heat, or until the chicken is cooked through.
