Chicken Zucchini Casserole

A co-worker shared this chicken zucchini casserole recipe that was originally her grandmother's. When I make it, I use pre-cooked chicken from the grocery store and fresh zucchini my neighbor gives me from his garden. —Bev Dutro, Dayton, Ohio

      This recipe was a huge hit with my family and they request it 2 or 3 times a month. The Stove Top dressing mix gives it a wonderful flavor!

      My first experience with this recipe was trying it at my church small group gathering. The flavor combination was the perfect craving to satisfy my palate. The attractive features of this recipe were that I already had most of these items at home, and it was very easy to put together with minimal dishes (a pan to melt the butter, a big bowl to mix everything in, a small dish for the 1/2 cup of stuffing topping, and a knife). I made one very minor adjustment to this to help reduce the sodium content. Since the stuffing already has a high amount of sodium, I would recommend using unsalted butter. I also added one more cup of zucchini so that I didn't have leftover zucchini (The recipe would only use 1.5 zucchini, so I threw the rest of the 1/2 zucchini in). I used two cans of chicken since I didn't have cubed chicken or rotisserie chicken handy. Canned chicken is already slightly shredded, which made it nice for cooking. If you are new to cooking or looking to teach someone how to cook a nice dish to serve for a meal, this would make an excellent recipe for demonstrating and practicing the skills of chopping and dicing (zucchini, onion) and shredding (carrot) and measuring. This recipe is definitely a keeper in our household.

      We had this at a friend's house last evening. She didn't have sour cream, so used chip dip! It had an awesome taste!!!

      This is a very good recipe and can be adjusted with so many different veggies! My garden is starting to provide zucchini and many more veggies that I dice up and add to this recipe. The variations are endless and the normal recipe is outstanding on its own! I added fresh garden tomatoes today along with the regular recipe, and it was amazing! Thank you Bev for such a wonderful dish! This will be a staple in my house for sure! :-)
