For now, I hope a new recipe will tide you over.
We just made it this week, I almost couldn't find a recipe but found one in the nick of time! I wanted to find a crock pot recipe since we were going to be away all day today for the race, but I couldn't find anything that seemed good. I happened to look at the pile of recipes in our cabinet and found this one that I had cut from the back of a Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing mix box.
Saving this was a good idea!
Corn and Bell Pepper Chicken Bake
1 2/3 cups hot water
1 package (6 oz) Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing mix
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 package (14 oz) frozen stir-fry vegetables (the peppers and onion blend), thawed
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 package (12 oz) frozen corn, thawed
This recipe was really easy to put together, which is a good thing since we were both pretty tired from the half marathon this morning! It was almost as easy as doing a crock pot recipe so everything worked out in the end.
All we did was add the hot water to the stuffing mix and stirred it until it was moist. While that was put to the side, we prepared the rest of the meal.
We were lazy and didn't trim the fat off of the chicken, but there wasn't much to begin with so it wasn't a big deal. The 4 chicken breast halves (the original recipe calls for 6 but we don't need that much chicken for just two people) are placed in the bottom of a 13x9 inch glass baking dish and then covered with the stir-fry vegetables.
Nice and colorful!
We mixed the corn and soup together and spooned it over the chicken and vegetables. Finally, we topped everything with the stuffing mix. The entire dish was placed in the oven, set at 425 degrees, and baked for 1 hour (the original recipe said 30 minutes and we took it out and the chicken was under cooked).
The final layer
After we got the baking time figured out, this meal turned out really well!
Mike even had seconds, which is saying a lot since we ran a half marathon and sometimes our appetites are a little off after that race distance.
Anyone have a favorite chicken bake that we could try?
