Chicken Dressing Casserole
This hearty bake is perfect after picking pumpkins or watching a football game in the crisp autumn air. Topped with buttery bread crumbs, the piping-hot combination of chicken, mixed vegetables and stuffing makes it a great one-dish wonder. -Angela Oelschlaeger, Tonganoxie, Kansas
