Chicken Squares with Cream Sauce, My Way
We altered this (see notes in directions) to our preferences and my lack of reading the ingredients needed…LOL. This was so amazingly good, I am thinking it would also be great for turkey leftovers…and stuffing if there is any leftover!

How to Make Chicken Squares with Cream Sauce, My Way

  1. Prepare stuffing to pkg directions. Put into bottom of 9×13 sprayed with PAM. Cut up chicken and spread evenly over stuffing. In a saucepan, melt butter, add flour and salt. Add broth, cook thick. Stir small amount into eggs, then add back into broth. Stir, but do not cook (take off heat to add back into the broth). Pour over chicken. Put baking dish in pan of hot water and bake at 325 degrees 1 hour. Knife in center comes out clean when done.
    Make sauce, mix all ingredients on low, spoon over casserole when you cut into squares.

  2. If using a whole chicken boil, remove bones and skin. We used rotisserie leftovers, it was fantastic that way and easier.
  3. 11-19-20 NOTE: I did full recipe of gravy. Halving the rest of the recipe it fit into an 8" square casserole, then into the 9×13 with the water bath. I used about an extra cup of chicken. For the herb stuffing, I only did butter and broth, since I forgot to read the whole recipe and didn’t realize I didn’t have onion or celery at the house…
