Mozzarella stuffing chicken

I never liked thanksgiving "stuffing" growing up. Actually, the only time I've ever liked it was at my husband's families' Thanksgiving last year (did you get that?!), and my husband's grandmama B made it homemade. It was GOOD! SOO I was a bit surprised; yet, hopeful, that I liked this recipe. It definitely has that thanksgiving stuffing flavor, but plenty of other flavors to balance it nicely. My 8 year old really likes this, and that always makes me feel good (he's also the pickiest of the bunch)

Mozzarella Stuffing Chicken

4-6 large skinless boneless chicken breasts (depending on how many peeps you're feeding!)

Mozzarella cheese slices (I buy the pre packaged slices for sandwiches; enough slices to cover chicken)

1 can Cream of Chicken soup

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup chicken flavored stuffing mix (I'm sure any flavor and brand will suffice!)

1 1/2 sticks butter, melted and divided (1/2 stick in one bowl and 1 stick in another bowl)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour 1/2 stick melted butter in the bottom of a casserole pan. Place chicken in; place cheese slices on top (enough to cover chicken). Mix soup with a dash of salt and pepper, then pour over cheese. Sprinkle the stuffing mix on top, and drizzle 1 stick melted butter over chicken and stuffing. Bake for 1 hour, uncovered.

*Tip- When serving, I cut up the chicken (for my kiddos), and scoop up the sauce and stuffing from the pan, and put on top of the cut up chicken.
