How to Make Cassies Creamy Chicken N Veggie Stuffing Bake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

    Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Make your stuffing mixture by pouring crumbs in a large bowl. Season the crumbs with onion and garlic powder, cracked black pepper,toss together.

    Add the melted butter and mix well.

    Press 3/4 of the crumbs evenly into the bottom of prepared dish. I pat it down with the bottom of a glass. Sprinkle with Parmesan and set aside.
  3. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat; stir the soups, cream cheese cubes, seasonings and milk together. Heat through, stirring often until the cream cheese is melted and thoroughly blended. Pour this mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
  4. In a small skillet with 1 - 2 tablespoons of oil, saute the onions, carrots, garlic and celery until softened.

    Pour this mixture, along with blanched asparagus into the soup mixture and blend well.
  5. Carefully spread the chicken mixture over the bread crumbs that you spread in baking dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. I then gave it a couple grinds of black pepper.
  6. Top with remaining crumbs. Cover with foil for the first 35 minutes, then remove foil and remain baking until bubbly and golden.

    Next time I make this, I think I'm going to just add a bag of mixed veggies...an option and no browning or precooking would be necessary, just thaw them out. I would still add onion and garlic though...everything is better with them...:)
  7. Enjoy!
