These are the leftovers, next time I'll take the picture before we eat it :)

Farmhouse Chicken

Creamy and flavorful chicken breast chunks topped with stuffing and baked.  My pickiest eater really likes this recipe.  I would just dice the onion and celery really tiny so they are not noticed by any children that don't like them.  As you can see I added half a bag of frozen peas just before I put the stuffing on top. 

4 tablespoons butter
4 tablespoons flour
2 cup milk
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
4 celery ribs, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
12 ounce package of stuffing mix


1. Saute onion, and prepare stuffing mix according to package directions and set aside.

2. In a medium sauce pan, melt butter and then add flour. Stir until bubbly, then cook one minute. Slowly add in milk, stirring continually to avoid lumps.

3. Add chicken, celery, onion, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 5-10 minutes, until chicken is done and celery is starting to get tender. 

4. Pour mixture into an 8x8-inch casserole dish. Top with stuffing. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
I used more chicken and a larger bag of stuffing for my family and kept the rest of the ingredients the same and baked it in a 13x9 pan instead of the 8x8. 
I think the sauce could be used instead of "Cream of ... Soups" in other recipes.
Hope you enjoy!
