Freezer Meals: Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Chicken and Stuffing Casserole is not only one of my families only favorite casseroles, I find it the perfect meal to assemble in smaller quantities for serving one or two people. If you are someone who packages up meals for an elderly parent, this one is perfect. Everything is precooked, so storing in the freezer and then just reheating is all they need to do for a warm and comforting meal.

It is super easy to make using a precooked rotisserie chicken or leftover Turkey from a holiday meal. In fact when turkey's go on sale for Thanksgiving, I recommend buying an extra one, cooking it down and using the meat from it for meals such as this for either your own freezer meals or for making for someone in need.

Jan's Tip: I love using leftover gravy, green beans, stuffing , and turkey after Thanksgiving, but using a store bought rotisserie chicken, cream of chicken soup, a can of green beans and a box of store bought stuffing mix (or make your own using my master mix!) will work JUST FINE!
For making as smaller meals for 1-2 people for storing in their freezer, make this dish into 2 freezer safe (and microwave safe) containers, so they can just go straight from freezer to microwave.
