>Chicken Stuffed Shells

>

What You will Need:

Jumbo pasta shells, Miracle Whip, chicken stuffing, cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, shredded cheese, shredded chicken*not shown here*

Oven Pre-heated to 350º Or Crock pot for 2 hours on low

You know how you buy that Family pack of chicken breasts for your family of 4 and there are always ALWAYS 7 breasts in it -one of which is a mutant one the size of a dinner plate and one no bigger than your thumb?

This is a great recipe to use the 3 “extra” breasts from that pack–just toss them in a pot of water and boil them up until cooked and shred them with a fork.

Alternatively you could use those cans of chicken that they sell near the tuna.

Cook up the jumbo shells, drain and let cool.

Follow the directions on the “stuffing” mix and prepare it.

Mix together the cream of chicken soup and chicken broth

Mix the chicken, stuffing and miracle whip together and stuff the mixture into the shells.

CROCK POT:
Grease your crock pot with some butter and pour some of this on the bottom of the crock pot (reserve enough to pour over the top of all the shells)

Arrange the shells in the crockpot

Cover shells with remaining sauce and sprinkle with the shredded cheese

Turn Crock pot on low..these should be ready in a few short hours since they are essentially already cooked you are basically trying to heat through and melt the cheese..so dont over cook them

OVEN:
Grease a 9×13 casserole dish-arrange shells in dish

cover with sauce and cheese

Bake at 350º for 30-35 minutes

Verdict:
A++
Delicious, tangy, Tyler gobbled it up which gives it an EXTRA thumbs up(+)–I’ll remember Im making it earlier next time so I can do it in the crock pot and not heat up the house in the summer–although prob wont be able to cram as many shells into the crock pot…hmmm must borrow second crock pot..

  1. >Jess I decided to try the crock pot method I laid the dry shells in the crock pot before cooking to see how many to use, I have a big oblong crock pot so holds more than the regular round pot I still had to many after they cooked but only four to throw out I started on high since it was late and I was anxious to eat sooner will let you know how it turns out.
