What we had for dinner tonight

I made yummy Chicken Stuffed shells, because I was craving them so bad.  

One of my best friend's made these for me when I visited her in Columbus a little over a month ago and they are fabulous.  Probably better to be made on a Saturday or Sunday, but they are delish.  
You can even keep these ingredients in the pantry and just whip this up...

You will need:

 2 cans of chicken
1 box of shells
1 box of chicken stuffing
4 cups Colby/Monterey shredded cheese (or whatever you have on hand)
1 large family cream of chicken (or 2 small cans)
To make:
  1. Cooks shells and stuffing (for my husband and I, I make about 18 shells which fills my pan nicely and leaves leftovers for lunch)
  2. Mix stuffing, drained chicken, and 2 ½ cups cheese. (Make sure that you shred the chicken with a fork as you mix it with the cooked stuffing and cheese)
  3. Grease the casserole dish and place stuffed shells in the dish. 
  4. Mix cream of chicken & milk with whisk. (you want to make it the consistency of like a gravy, where it’s not too thick or too thin)
  5. Pour the gravy mixture over the shells until coated.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake in the oven @ 350 degrees for 30 min.
  8. Uncover and sprinkle the rest of the bag of cheese on top.
  9. Bake uncovered for 10-15 min. or until cheese has melted.
They are truly yummalicious!  I served ours with salad tonight and it was fabulous.
Happy Monday!
