I've made this many, many times. We all absolutely love it! The only thing I do differently is add a little more cheese. Great! Great!

Hi Charlotte: According to the recipe, you do not need to cover the dish. Thanks!

Are you supposed to cover the dish with foil?

A friend of mine brought this dish over when we moved into our new house and OMG it was a hit. It was so nice to have such an amazing homemade dish instead of your boring pizza that most people order when they are moving. My husband is not a big chicken eater, but has become his favorite dish that I am making tonight. Thanks for continuing to create and inspire others to enjoy cooking and eating from the incredible receipes that you create. From one Georgia peach to another one. Susan

My family really love this recipe thank you.

I would give this 10 spoons as well. I have made it a few times and my 24 yr old son wondered what I did to the chicken to make it so tender! I also wondered if it could be assembled the night before. We loved the bread crumbs and next time I am going to add more and put it around the spaces in the pan with a little more butter. This last time I was out of wine and just used water and it was still great but will have wine for next time. I made this last year for xmas and everyone loved it. My friend gave me a very similar recipe (without the breadcrubs) and I was looking online at work just to see if the recipe was here, now I don't have to carry recipe in my purse for after work grocery shopping. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

Has anyone ever put this together ahead of time and then put in the fridge and heated it from there? I am thinking of making this for an upcoming event but wanted to be able to just put it in the oven when needed and not be "preparing" while guests were there. Thanks!

This is a great recipe! It was really tasty and moist. I will add it to my regular meal plan!!

I made this again for the fourth time. It is fantastic.

Ms. Paula- This recipe rocks!! and I haven't changed one thing! Oh except for the butter, of coarse I added more!

By Lisa Howard on September 26, 2012


I had to make some minor changes to the original receipt. I'm allergic to MSG, which is in both Cream of Chicken soup and the stuffing mix. I substituted Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Chicken Soup (no MSG) and 1/4 cup each of Seasoned/Italian Bread Crumbs and Panko Bread Crumbs (no MSG)for the Stuffing Mix. I also added a small can of sliced mushrooms. I deleted the salt and added 1/2 teaspoon each of Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Pepper and Old bay Seasoning, and 1 teaspoon of Poultry Seasoning. I also deleted the melted butter because it seemed to make it "too rich". If the sauce is too thick, I thin it out with alittle Salt-Free Chicken Stock. It tastes great and I can eat it without sneezing! Company loves it!

Hi,I made this for my hubby and we hated the stuffing topping. I also subed the wine for broth (because I haven't found one that I like to cook with) the sauce part was good but the stuffing was repulsive. I tried it again with buttery crackers like Ritz on top way better. With those little tweeks, I will make this again and again. It's quite easy and I have all ingredients on hand at anytime. Two spoons lost for the stuffing. (the wine is a matter of preferance.)

Do you add the water to the cream of chicken soup or no?

I have made this dish twice in the last three weeks. I would make this every week. It is soooo very easy and it is rated to me a 10 spoons on a five spoon scale. Don't pass this by, make it you won't regret it and neither will your family. I used pepperidge Farm Herb Stuffing and seal bag after for the next time. I also used Campbell cream of chicken soup with mushrooms. Every thing else is the same.

By Bette Arnold on March 23, 2012


Wonderful dish!!!! I added more stuffing but followed everything else, and my family absolutely LOVED it.

By Jennifer on January 06, 2012


I make this all the time !! SO GOOD!!! Best ever !! Instead of Wine I used Chicken Broth because I thought the wine sounded odd? I used 2 slices of cheese per chicken like most do. I used 2 cups of Mrs. C's CORN BREAD style dressing and it's the BEST DISH IN THE WORLD !!! One time I tried it with the wine and ummm NOOOO it was nasty and was really bitter tasting and I bought a good wine too! We nibbled on the dish but really ate around the dish. The wine was nasty in it !! Very bitter tasing. Tossed any leftovers in the trash. (It was because of the wine) Went back to my old way of using Chicken brother in place of wine and again this dish is AMAZING !!!!!!!! I'm telling ya'll use Chicken broth instead, it will even be better !!!! Oh also use CORN BREAD Mrs. C's stufffing, not herb. The cornbread dressing just makes it taste so down home good !! I'm making it right now infact. SO WONDERFUL !!! My friend makes this too and she too tried it using wine and thought umm no ... then she used the chicken brother instead and said it changed the whole taste of it to soooo much better. I'm tellin' ya'll use chicken brother you will LOVE IT !!!!!! Thank Paula !!! Hugs
