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! 

Ingredients:
  • 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?

  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.
