Chicken Hotdish with Stuffing

I had a similar hotdish years ago to this.  But that one was so rich.  So I decided to lighten it up and it worked out really well.  Perfect meal for a day that the temperature hovers at a high of 0 outside.







Chicken Hotdish with Stuffing

3 chicken breasts, seasoned and cooked
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 tbsp corn starch
1 cup peas
1 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp celery flakes
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Stuffing
1 cup Pepperidge Farm herb stuffing
2 tbsp butter

Cut the cooked and seasoned chicken into bite size pieces.  Place them and the peas in a crock pot.  You can also make this in the oven in a 9 x 9 pan.  Add in chicken broth.  In a measuring cup, mix together evaporated milk and corn starch.  Pour into crock pot along with the parsley and crushed red pepper flakes.  Cook for an hour over medium heat.  In a small saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the stuffing.  Sprinkle over the top of the chicken mixture and cook for another half hour.
