Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner

I won this adorable apron on The Distracted Domestic. The uber talented Regena made this apron just for me. I won it for participating in her Tie One On Apron giveaway. I made aprons for two of my co-workers for the official Tie One On Day. I greatly enjoyed doing this and I won this fabulous apron in the process! See it was a win - win situation! THANK YOU Regena, I LOVE it!
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!
