There’s something about casseroles that I just love. Maybe it’s how it’s a whole meal in one dish. Or maybe it’s that they’re such a part of Southern culture. Casseroles are also perfect for taking to church potlucks and for delivering to your friend who’s just had a baby (or surgery). I’m in the stage of life where many of my friends are having babies, and I’m cranking out casseroles left and right to help them manage their time with their new little one. Not that I’m complaining. On the contrary, cooking for people is my love language, and I’m glad I can help my friends and their families by bringing them food!


This casserole though, was cooked just for me and the hubby…and we LOVED IT! Whichever friend has a baby next can possibly expect me to bring this to their house :-). This dish was so simple, I had finished all the prep work by the time the oven had preheated! Now that’s fast. One bite of this dish, and the hubby said “Whoa! That’s great!”. We also loved how CHEAP this meal is! I already had every ingredient on hand except for the chicken and the stuffing mix. That means each serving cost just pennies to make! And even if you need to buy all the ingredients, it’s still a very budget-friendly meal.

  1. What do you think of using Rotel instead of plain diced tomatoes? Also do you use the seasoning in the stove top or just the bread crumbs.

      I think Rotel would definitely give it a bit more kick! I think it would taste less Italian and a little more Mexican, but there’s nothing wrong with that. If you wanted some additional Italian flavor you could used the Italian diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano. And yes, you use both the seasoning and the breadcrumbs in the stuffing mix.

      • Thanks for your reply. I am going to give the Italian diced tomatoes a try as you are correct in thinking to keep it in theme of bruschetta. Sounds like a great winter comfort dish.
