Baked Stove Top Mozzarella Chicken takes a few simple ingredients and turns them into WoW! A quick and tasty meal the whole family loves! I’m not sure where I originally found it so I did a Google search and discovered so many similar recipes, I have no idea who first created it. For all I know, it might’ve been Kraft or Campbell’s. So here’s my version. If it seems familiar, you’ve probably seen it scrolling down facebook or some other such place on the web. 😉 Trust me, it’s worth making for its ease and deliciousness!
No salt is needed in this dish since the stuffing, cheese, and soup come pre-loaded. A little pepper wouldn’t go amiss, though. As usual, the pictures show a double batch, recipe is for a single.
Baked Stove Top Mozzarella Chicken
Created by Melissa Woolard | Culinary Craftiness
- 1 pkg. Stove Top chicken stuffing mix
- 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 package sliced mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 stick of butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with oil.
- Trim fat from chicken and butterfly and cut all the way through to make two thinner pieces from each. This is easier to do when the chicken is partially frozen.
- Place the chicken in an even layer in bottom of dish. Cover with cheese slices in an even layer.
- In a small bowl, stir milk and soup together until smooth. Spread evenly over cheese layer.
- Sprinkle the Stove Top Stuffing evenly over the top of the soup.
- Pour melted butter as evenly as possible over the stuffing.
- Bake approximately 35 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through, no longer pink in center, and internal temp reaches 165°F.
- Serve with rice, mashed potatoes, or mashed cauliflower.
Another great, easy chicken casserole that was probably crafted in a Campbell’s test kitchen is Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole. I was concerned at first about the amount of carbs and calories in these cream soups, but it’s really quite negligible when divided by so many servings. Just watch out for the salt content by not adding until your serving of chicken is on your plate. It may taste perfect as is.
