I made the full recipe but only one chicken breast as hubby and I always split a chicken breast at dinner. I knew we would love to have extra stuffing for later in the week. I have to admit that this recipe does use quite a few dishes and pans but it is well worth it. One tip is that I drained the oil after browning the chicken and just before adding the soup mixture. I’m glad I did. We thought the addition of onion, bacon, and cheese added to the flavor of the dish.It looks like a lot of work but it went together quickly and we were eating within half an hour. We love the recipe and I highly recommend it.Volunteer Field Editor

Delicious, but the sodium content is a nightmare.

Yum! We loved it! The store was out of breasts so I used boneless skinless thighs and I am sure breasts are much better! Very easy!

Good quick little dish. If u like green bean casserole, you'll love this creamy green beans, chicken and stuffing casserole.

I just tried this recipe. I made it before I read the reviews. I almost added only 1 can of beans, but glad I added 2, as they cook down a bit, and by the second reheat, they will be less in volume. I agree it's like a great green bean casserole with chicken. I used chicken tender strips, which put a little bite of chicken in each scoop. With the sodium in the soup, the cheese, the stuffing, and the canned beans, I thought it might be too salty, so I cut down on the teaspoon of salt in the flour mixture to less. However, since the teaspoon is dispersed into the flour, next time I will use the full teaspoon. I am going to try some of the spicy additive to the flour next time. It was good the first night, but I know once the flavors meld, it will be even better the second day. It was a hit.

Made this tonight and the husband said it's a keeper! I used 3 pretty large breasts, added a few seasonings, and used Stovetop Chicken stuffing. It was great, but I would probably tweak the seasonings again to our taste (less salt, and maybe spicy!) and only use one can of green beans. This was a large meal for 2 people! Add a salad and rolls and it's wonderful for a simple, impressive meal.

What a creative way to put a chicken and stuffing dish together! It makes it more appealing to certain family members. Way to go! My family prefers bread stuffing over cornbread unfortunately, so I used Stovetop's bread stuffing, and only 1 can of green beans. I added a dash of Tony Chachere's Spice seasoning to the flour which adds a little kick to the chicken. Thanks for sharing and keep creating!

Wondered why this was so salty. Didn't look until after I made it that sodium is 2,938 Mg! Daily intake for a whole day's food should be 2300 mg.
