Regena sent me an e-mail entitled Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner to let me know I won. Of course I was super excited to win and every time I hear Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner it makes me think of a recipe I got a few years ago during a Wilson Reading workshop. Another workshop participant gave it to me. In honor of this occasion I thought I'd share the recipe.
Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner
! small roasted chicken or 3 cooked chicken breasts (shredded)
1 box stuffing mix
2 jars of chicken gravy
1 pie crust(pre-made or homemade)
Frozen veggie mix
Fresh veggies(mushrooms, celery, onion- or whatever you like)
1/4/to 1/2 cup merlot or red wine
3 tablespoons of butter
Preheat the oven to 350.
Prepare stuffing and set aside.
Saute the fresh veggies in butter. Add fresh rosemary or thyme if desired.
Stir together all ingredients in a casserole dish (I use a 2.5 quart dish)
Top with a pie crust. Cover with with foil and bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake until golden and bubbly(approx. 35 minutes.)
Serve and enjoy!
And that's Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!
