Chicken and Stuffing Crockpot

They’ve changed my hours at work so now several days a week I don’t get home until 9pm.  I like to cook dinner and, honestly, I know that Jim would rather buy food than make dinner, so I try to leave a casserole or crock-pot for him to be able to pop in the oven or dig in to when he’s ready for dinner.  Plus it’s still warm for me when I get home.  This is one of his favorite recipes and it’s one that I basically modified after finding a bunch of recipes online that weren’t quite right for us.  It's very easy and super basic! 

  • Chicken breasts- use how much you need!  We are a family of 2 at the moment so we only need enough for us and I hate having left overs.  So I usually buy a family pack of chicken breasts and then use 2 or 3 at a time.  I use 2 for this, depending on the size.
  • Can of corn or a frozen pack would work too.  I honestly think mixed vegetables would be best because then it's more like a chicken pot pie, but Jim doesn't like that so we have corn.  You should use what your family likes.
  • Box of stuffing.  Any stuffing will do, I like the cheapest I can find!
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, or 1 family size can.  I prefer to use Campbell's Soup but again you can use whatever brand works for you.  Generally, I'm not a name brand shopper, but I do feel like you taste a difference on this one.
Now you're ready to assemble!

Step 1- spray your crockpot with non stick spray, I hate it when things stick to the sides!

Step 2- cube the chicken and put it in the crockpot (sorry I didn't get a pic of the later.)

Step 3- put the vegetables in

Step 4- put the stuffing in, make sure to spread it out, this will serve as a "crust."

Step 5- cover the stuffing with the can(s) of soup.  I know I stink, I didn't get a pic of that!
Step 6- cook on low for 2-4 hours.  The stuffing should be a bit crispy but not burnt and it will be tasty goodness.  Sadly, Jim got to eat before I did, and I forgot to ask him to take a picture of what it looked like before so you'll just have to use your imagination based on the pics I could get.

I know it's not much to look at but I promise it tastes delicious!  Try it and let me know what you think!

Anyone have any favorite set and forget recipes that they'd like to share?


  1. You had me at crock-pot and stuffing. How delish! Thanks for sharing at Throwback Thursday.


    1. That's awesome! It's so tasty so easy! Hope you're having a great day!

  2. I can use any easy crockpot recipe. Does your crockpot have a timer? I leave at 7 am and usually am not home before 7 pm. I might try this on a Saturday or Sunday. Thanks for sharing at this week's Throwback Thursday party.
