HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN ZUCCHINI CASSEROLE:
This easy chicken casserole can be made in 10 minutes or less, especially if you have chicken that is already cooked.

I love using a rotisserie chicken from the deli for this recipe to save me time and add a savory flavor.

You can make this casserole in the amount of time it takes for your oven to heat up, so let’s get started!

Step 1: In a large bowl, combine the stuffing mix and melted butter. Mix until well combined and then set 1/2 cup of it aside to use later as a topping.

Step 2: Add zucchini, cooked chicken, cream of chicken soup, onion and sour cream to the large bowl with the stuffing and mix until combined.

Step 3: Spread zucchini mixture in an even layer in a 9×13-inch glass pay sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

Supplies needed to make this Chicken Zucchini recipe:
Large glass mixing bowl: I use this glass bowl for just about everything! It’s big enough to use to make cookie doughs or cake batters in but looks good enough to use as a serving bowl for salads.
9×13-inch glass baking dish: I have used this same pan since I received it for my wedding over 10 years ago. It washes up so nicely in the dish washer and I love that it has a lid for easy storage and transport.
Rubber spatula: These are the best rubber spatulas for cleaning the sides of a bowl. They are heat resistant, stain resistant and can be thrown in the dishwasher to be cleaned.
