Let's get started!
First, preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Next, spray a 9x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. I used a canola oil nonstick spray, but any type will work.
Dice up the chicken breasts and spread out evenly in the bottom of the dish. I lightly sprinkled the chicken with salt and pepper, but this is optional. Usually the seasoning from the stuffing is salty enough.
Boneless chicken thighs can also be used as well.
TIP: If you want to save time, cook the chicken ahead of time and reduce cook time by 5-10 minutes depending on your oven.
Using a medium mixing bowl, whisk together cream of chicken soup and milk. Next, pour the mixture evenly over the chicken in the baking dish.
Sprinkle the stuffing mix over the top, then pour the chicken broth evenly over the stuffing mix. A low-sodium chicken broth can also be used since the seasonings in the stuffing are usually salty.
Cover the dish with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked thoroughly. If you're using precooked chicken, reduce cook time by 5-10 minutes.
Remove from over and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
TIP: Add a vegetable side, such as, green beans or corn.
