Crock-Pot Chicken and Stuffing



  • 1 lb skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (6 ounce) package Stove Top stuffing mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (10 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup or cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Place the skinless chicken breast halves at the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. Prepare the Stuffing Mixture:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the Stove Top stuffing mix, condensed soup, and water. Mix until well combined.
  3. Layer the Stuffing:
    • Spread the stuffing mixture evenly over the chicken in the crockpot.
  4. Add Chicken Broth:
    • Pour the chicken broth over the stuffing mixture. This adds moisture and flavor to the dish.
  5. Cooking Process:
    • Cover the crockpot and cook on low heat for 6 hours. Cooking on low ensures the chicken becomes tender and absorbs all the flavors from the stuffing and soup mixture.
  6. Serve:
    • After 6 hours, carefully remove the lid. The chicken should be cooked through and tender, and the stuffing should be moist and flavorful.
    • Serve the Crock-Pot Chicken and Stuffing hot, spooning out portions of chicken with stuffing on the side.

Optional Additions:

  • For added flavor, you can add diced onions, celery, or mushrooms to the stuffing mixture.
  • If you prefer a creamier texture, you can stir in a little sour cream or cream cheese into the soup mixture before pouring it over the chicken.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley for a pop of color and added freshness.

Q1: Can I use boneless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast? A1: Yes, you can substitute boneless chicken thighs for chicken breast in this recipe. Just ensure they are cooked thoroughly; slow cooking helps make them tender and flavorful.

Q2: Can I use homemade stuffing instead of Stove Top mix? A2: Absolutely! You can use homemade stuffing if you prefer. Prepare your favorite stuffing recipe, and layer it over the chicken in the crockpot following the same instructions.

Q3: Can I use low-sodium or homemade chicken broth to reduce sodium content? A3: Yes, you can use low-sodium or homemade chicken broth to reduce the sodium content. It won’t compromise the flavor, and it’s a great option for those watching their sodium intake.

Q4: How can I prevent the stuffing from becoming too mushy? A4: To prevent the stuffing from becoming overly mushy, ensure the lid of the crockpot is on securely and avoid opening it frequently during the cooking process. Also, do not add extra water beyond what the recipe calls for, as this can make the stuffing soggy.

Q5: Can I add vegetables to the dish? A5: Yes, you can add vegetables like carrots, celery, or peas to the crockpot for added nutrition and flavor. Dice the vegetables and layer them with the chicken before adding the stuffing mixture.

Q6: Can I cook this recipe on high heat for a shorter time? A6: While it’s recommended to cook on low heat for 6 hours for the best results, you can cook on high for around 3-4 hours. Keep a close eye on the dish to prevent overcooking, as cooking on high heat can sometimes lead to the chicken becoming dry.

Q7: Can I prepare the ingredients the night before and refrigerate them until morning? A7: Yes, you can prepare the chicken, stuffing mixture, and broth the night before and store them separately in the refrigerator. In the morning, simply assemble the ingredients in the crockpot and cook as directed.

Q8: Can I freeze the leftovers? A8: Yes, you can freeze the leftovers in airtight containers for up to 2-3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through before serving.
