All About the Food - 12 Weeks of Christmas

Week 4 of Red Writing's 12 Weeks of Christmas is All About the Food.

For Thanksgiving and Christmas Day we have the same menu every year. It's my favorite meal!

Turkey, Dressing, Gravy and Cranberry Sauce
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Beans
Cranberry Freeze Salad
Chocolate Pie
Pumpkin Pie
all the traditional southern holiday foods

But sometimes I like to make a "holiday-ish" meal that we can eat any day, but that won't take two days to cook!

This recipe is for Yum-Yum Chicken. It is layered chicken, a layer of sauce and dressing on top. It is reaaally good.

Layer the chicken, then the sauce. . .

then the stove top dressing on top . . .
and bake. It is saucy and yummy! And it's a little bit of Thanksgiving that you can make any day of the week.
Yum-Yum Chicken

6-8 pcs of chicken, boiled and cut up
2 cans cream of chicken soup
16 oz. sour cream
2 boxes dry stove top stuffing mix
2 cups chicken broth
1 stick butter, melted
onion and celery, chopped and sauteed

Boil and cut up chicken. Spread in the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Mix 2 cans cream of chicken soup and 16 oz sour cream. Spread this on top of chicken. Pour 2 boxes of dry stove top stuffing over the sauce. Spread sauteed onion and celery over stuffing. Mix 2 cups chicken broth and 1 stick melted butter, and pour over the top of the stuffing.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Serve with cranberry sauce.

So easy and so good.

I make chicken and stuffing a lot during the winter because it's such a comfort food for me.

I've never seen it like this, though...I can't wait to try it!
