The flavors are great, but the recipe is simple and delicious and can be put together in 15 minutes or less.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs (leftover cooked chicken can be used, chop or tear into pieces)
  • 1 large can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 large bag frozen mixed veggies (your choice)
  • 1 box any flavor stuffing mix (sometimes I use 2 boxes to make a thicker topping)
  • chopped peanuts or cashews (optional)
  • Directions:

    Place breasts or thighs in just enough water to cover. Poach for 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside until slightly cooled enough to handle.

    Mix stuffing mix and 1/2 cup very hot water in small bowl. Set aside.

    Chop or shred chicken, and stir into bowl with cream of chicken soup. Place in ungreased casserole dish (size will be determined by if you like a deep dish casserole or something thinner - I use a 2 quart casserole dish.)

    Sprinkle frozen veggies (no need to thaw) on top of chicken mixture. Sprinkle this with the stuffing mixture.

    This will bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 30 minutes or until stuffing mixture is brown. Remove from oven and let sit 5-10 minutes.

    Note: I add chopped cashews or peanuts to my stuffing to give it a little crunch, but that is optional especially if you are feeding those with allergies.

    Servings: 4-6
    Prep Time: 15 - 20 Minutes
    Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

    Source: I was looking for something relatively quick and easy for a church supper so I just played around with ingredients I had on hand until I got it right. It is a variation of a shepherd's pie.

Delicious flavour, serve with real crusty bread to soak up the juices.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 lbs. chicken pieces
  • 6 small onions
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 oz. (1/4 cup) butter
  • 1 (15 oz.) can whole tomatoes
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/2 tsp. basil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

Melt butter in pan, add one finely chopped onion, crushed garlic, and chicken pieces. Cook until chicken is brown, turning often. Transfer to ovenproof dish, add undrained tomatoes, wine, basil, and peeled whole onions, salt, and pepper.

Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees F) for 40 minutes or until chicken is tender. I sometimes serve this with spaghetti or just crusty bread.

I like how the chicken pieces go on top of this instead of deboned chicken mixed in like usually is the case with chicken casserole.

I don't know about the magazine recipe you're asking about but here are two recipes I found on the web. The first one really isn't a casserole per se but it sounds delicious and am going to give it a try my myself. The second one is a standard gizzard casserole:

Chicken Gizzard Casserole - 1

2 lbs chicken gizzards
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 onions, sliced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup white wine
1 cup tomato sauce
1 tomato, seeded, peeled, and chopped
1 teaspoon salt
pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1/2 cup chicken broth

Brown gizzards in oil and butter.
Add onions and garlic and brown.
Add wine and tomato sauce, stir and cook 2 minutes.
Add tomato and rest of seasonings.
Simmer covered for 1-1/2 hours.
Add chicken broth and cook 1-1/2 hours more.
Serve over rice or buttered noodles

Chicken Gizzard Casserole - 2

1 pound chicken gizzards
1 package long grain wild rice
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Salt and pepper
Grated cheddar cheese

Turn oven on to 350 Degrees.
In a pan, bring water to a boil and add the gizzards. Cook for 1-2 hours until the gizzards are tender
Make the rice according to package
In a bowl, mix together the rice, gizzards, soup, salt, and pepper.
Pour chicken mixture into casserole dish
Top with Cheese and Bake for 25 minutes
