Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a Dutch oven or large saucepan combine spinach, half of the soup, the water and butter. Bring to boiling. (If using spinach, separate it with a fork.) Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Add the stuffing mix to saucepan; stir to moisten. Spread mixture in an ungreased 3-quart rectangular baking dish or eight 10-ounce au gratin dishes; top with Grilled & Ready® Diced Chicken. Stir milk into remaining soup; pour over chicken. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes or until heated through.

Serving Suggestion:

For a potluck or party, use the large baking dish. For a smaller party or dinner at home, the au gratin dishes are more elegant.

I made this the other night for myself and my boyfriend and it was awesome! I cut the recipe in half (4 servings) and still had plenty of leftovers for lunch. Instead of using the grilled and ready chicken we marinated a chicken breast in italian dressing and sauteed it in a pan with a little minced garlic. We also added a little minced garlic onion powder salt and pepper to the spinach mixture while that was cooking. The result allowed for just the right amount of seasoning/flavor to be mixed throughout the dish. The only change I plan to make next time is to mix the chicken into the spinach/stuffing when I'm adding it to the baking dish so the entire dish melds a little more. Read More

Wouldn't make it again. Although I added sautéed celery & onion and used fresh spinach this dish was just mushy & salty (the soup?). Read More

Super good! I did half frozen broccoli and half fresh spinach. I cooked 3 chicken breasts in crock pot with 3 garlic cloves for 6 hours. I topped with a generous amount of parm cheese. Kept very well in fridge and my husband says it got better on the 2nd night of leftovers! Read More

I made a half recipe. I used half spinach and broccoli which we definitely enjoyed more than straight spinach. I also used my own chicken that I cooked and seasoned. Read More

I used cream of celery soup added half a packet of Italian seasoning mix and served over lemon orzo. The chicken was still really boring and flavorless. Perhaps grilling the chicken with Italian seasoning would help bring everything together. Read More

This is a keeper! My family loved it. Even those who do not like spinach. I used cream of chicken soup and spinach. I also chopped up my own chicken breast and sautéed in the pan and then put on the casserole. I had a bag of Pepperidge Farm Sage and Onion cube stuffing that I never used at Thanksgiving so I used that. Read More
