With an overload of boneless skinless chicken breast, I thought what possibly could I do with it all? Since I’m not one who typically drools over casserole dishes, I decided to challenge myself. However, I thought adding stuffing, yes one of Thanksgiving classic comfort foods, to this dish is the perfect leap into holiday cooking spirit. Besides, who said stuffing was only for turkey?
