Chicken Casserole
(an old recipe handed down from Ruby in Knoxville and tweaked by Joy)
Ingredients:  Chicken; I cook about 5 chicken leg quarters (the original recipe called for 8 chicken breasts).  You can use as much chicken as you choose.  I've even used a whole chicken before.  Cook the chicken on the stovetop in a pan of water with salt and pepper. for about an hour until  it's done.  Pull chicken off the bone and cut up into bite size pieces.  Spread chicken in bottom of baking pan.
  1 can of each Cream of Chicken Soup and Cream of Mushroom Soup.. spread on top of the chicken.
  1 stick of butter (melted)
  1 8oz. pkg. of Pepperidge Farms Herbal dressing... mix with the butter.  Then spread mixture ove top of pan.
  Pour 2 cups (more or less) of the chicken broth over top of the stuffing.
Bake at 325 degrees for 35 minutes.

(For our LARGE pot for the Gift Shop, I added another package of Chili-o,3 more cans of beans, another can of both the tomatoes and the picante sauce.)
Heat, stirring occasionally until all the mix is thoroughly heated.  We served with crackers or corn chips and shredded cheese!
