Cooktop Cove: This chicken and stuffing casserole tastes just like Thanksgiving
By Emily Monaco
You don't need to wait until Thanksgiving to get the delicious flavors of stuffing on your table. The recipe below combines stuffing mix with creamy condensed soup, chicken and a few special seasonings to get you in the fall spirit in no time.
The best casseroles always have a crispy top, and this casserole doesn't disappoint. It capitalizes on everyone's favorite part of another Thanksgiving staple: green bean casserole. When you combine fried onions with the mixture of butter and stuffing, they add tons of texture to the finished casserole.
