  • 8 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 pounds chicken breast, cut into ½-1-inch pieces
  • 4 cups chicken broth, divided
  • 12 ounces dry stuffing mix
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 2 large carrots, thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups frozen green beans
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • Optional: gravy for serving


Step 1

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter and the chicken in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 7-10 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Step 2

While the chicken cooks, make the stuffing. Bring 2 cups chicken broth and 2 tablespoons of butter in a medium saucepan to a simmer. Remove from heat and mix in stuffing. Set aside.

Step 3

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Step 4

Add remaining 4 tablespoons of butter, onion, celery and carrots to the large skillet over medium heat. Cook until vegetables are tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic, nutmeg, thyme, sage, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and let cook for 1 minute. Sprinkle in flour and mix until combined. Cook for 1 more minute.

Step 5

While mixing, slowly pour in remaining 2 cups chicken broth, followed by milk. Simmer until thickened.

Step 6

Remove from heat. Mix in sour cream, green beans, corn and chicken.

Step 7

Transfer to a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top filling with stuffing and spread evenly.

Step 8

Cover and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly around the edges. Remove the cover and bake another 5 minutes.

Step 9

Serve with gravy, if desired. Enjoy!
