  • 2 boxes of chicken flavored stuffing cooked
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms sauteed (optional)
  • 1 box of jumbo shells; cooked drained, and cooled
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Cook stuffing following package directions.
  • Add chicken breast, stirring to combine, and set aside.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with a non-stick cooking spray. Stuff shells with the stuffing mixture and place in prepared dish, open and facing down.
  • Heat the soup, milk and water in a sauce pan, stirring until evenly combined. Pour over top of the stuffed shells.
  • Bake 35 minutes.
  • Take out of oven and sprinkle with Swiss cheese.
  • Bake an additional 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Let sit 5 min before serving. Enjoy!

For Freezer Cooking:

  • Stop after step 3, except instead of putting the stuffed shells into a prepared baking sheet, place them on a wax paper lined baking sheet. Place sheet in freezer. When the shells are frozen, transfer them to a ziplocking bag. Store in your freezer. When ready to eat, thaw the shells and proceed from Step 3, this time placing them in the prepared dish


  • Make sure to let the shells cool prior to filling them.
  • This is an easy way to use up leftover stuffing and chicken.
  • Don't like Swiss cheese? Substitute it for another cheese instead.
