This is a recipe I came across years ago that brings back cozy fall feelings. It's got a Thanksgiving vibe, with chicken and stuffing, combined with melted Swiss cheese and topped with toasted pecans. It could easily be a day-after-Thanksgiving dinner using leftover turkey and stuffing. Thanks to brands who are making gluten free stuffing mixes, this is a cinch to put together, and you will love the taste!
Swiss Chicken Casserole
4 cups shredded cooked chicken (1 rotisserie chicken)
1 cup diced celery
1/4 cup onion
2 cups gluten free stuffing mix or croutons
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients except pecans. Spoon the casserole mixture into a greased 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle the pecans over the top. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes or until bubbly and heated through, taking off the foil for the last 10 minutes to toast the pecans.
Gather your ingredients. You will need a rotisserie chicken, celery, onion, Swiss cheese, gluten free stuffing mix or gluten free croutons, and Miracle Whip.
Shred the chicken. You want to get about 4 cups. We like the breast meat for this recipe.

Bake at 350°F for about 40 minutes. I cover it with foil for the first 30 minutes, then take off the foil for the last 10 minutes so the pecans can get all toasty!
The melted cheese in among the roasted chicken and stuffing is so satisfying!
