{Recipes} "Reminds Me of Thanksgiving" Casserole

I thought it would be appropriate to share this casserole recipe with you as we approach Thanksgiving because that is exactly what it reminds me of. It's a little teaser for the WONDERFUL meal we will all be eating at the end of the month! ***This meal was made by one of the members of the women's bible study I attended last spring. I loved it so much, I asked her for the recipe.***

~ 8-10 large chicken breasts
~ 1 large bag of stuffing mix
~ 1 stick butter
~ 1 can cream of mushroom soup
~ 1 can cream of celery soup
~ 1 can evaporated milk
~ 1 large onion, diced
~ 4-6 celery stalks, rinsed and diced

1. In a casserole dish, place uncooked chicken and cover with the diced onion & celery. Cover with water and bake on 350 degrees for approximately 45 minutes {or until chicken is done}.
2. Once cooked, cut chicken. Place the onion/celery broth mixture in a separate sauce pan on the stove and add the butter. Melt butter into broth.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the soups and evaporated milk.
4. In casserole dish, layer the chicken, then soup/milk mixture, then stuffing mix, then broth/butter.
5. Bake on 350 degrees for another 40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

***I served mine with a side of cranberry jelly and a green salad. Rice would pair nicely with this meal too.***

***This made a nice large serving, so I separated it into two smaller casseroles. One we ate for dinner last night,and the other I froze for next week. LOVE THAT...getting two meals out of one!***

  4. haha- i am making this tonight for matt :) my mom wanted me to tell you that you layer this twice (because i was asking her about how many times to layer it). she said she wasn't sure if she told you that in the original recipe.
