Expert Tips

The stuffing mix for chicken is the already-flavored bread crumb mixture that comes in a box. All the seasoning are included, and you just add the water and the butter--it's that easy! You can use your family's favorite chicken pieces, such as legs, thighs, breasts or a mixture of all three, so everyone gets his or her favorite "pick of the day."

The herbs in the cream of chicken soup make a nicely seasoned one-dish meal. You also can use your favorite cream soup, such as golden onion or broccoli.

We like to add the green beans at the end of the cooking time so that they keep their green color and have more texture. But you don't have to; you can add the green beans with the sweet potatoes, but they will be softer in texture and a lighter green color.
