This recipe has been a long time coming! You’ve been asking for an oven-baked version of my Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing, and it’s finally here. This has officially been added to my list of our favorite recipes on the blog.

How to Make It

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

Sauté  the onions, celery, and sausage in butter until softened, about 5 minutes. 

Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and place on the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.

Combine the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, milk, dried thyme, and ground sage. Add it to the top of the chicken and spread evenly to coat.

Add thawed green beans next. Note: The green beans will be al dente (have a slight crunch). For softer green beans, submerge them into the sauce a bit.

Pro Tips

  • To make this even more indulgent, add a layer of shredded cheddar cheese on top of the green beans and underneath the stuffing.
  • I use Stove Top stuffing for this recipe but any variety of dry breadcrumb stuffing will work.
  • Other vegetable options include frozen carrots, peas, and corn.
