Martha: A neighbor brought me some fresh squash and to be honest I only eat squash one way and that is mixed with stuffing and cheese. I had found a recipe for an Italian chicken dish which was supposed to have spaghetti sauce poured over the chicken, onions and peppers. I eliminated the sauce and decided to create a Chicken with Squash Dressing dish instead. This is a simple dish to make and the chicken goes perfectly with the squash dressing. I loved it and all I had to do was add a salad and I have an easy, delicious meal.
Food Tester Carol: Squash casseroles are such a great mainstay of our menus. We loved this blend of squash, chicken and cheddar flavors with the herbed bread stuffing. The stuffing makes it taste like Thanksgiving or like a Sunday dinner all in one dish. You said it was easy and we are going to make this one soon.
