EASY Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing

I took out the crockpot over the weekend for another attempt...and it came out great! This chicken & stuffing recipe is SO simple and only uses a few ingredients. It was a big hit in our house!

Ingredients
• 4 thawed chicken breasts
• 6oz. package of Stove Top stuffing mix
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 1 can of cream of chicken soup

Only 4 ingredients! Awesome!


First put your chicken in the crock pot.

Pour the package of stuffing on top.

Mix sour cream, soup, and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl.
Pour the mixture over the top of the chicken and stuffing.
Cook on LOW for 4 hours.
Fluff and serve! Yum!

  6. I was wondering the same thing about the chicken being frozen or thawed...that will make a difference in the cook time.

  7. *Note: the chicken was thawed and I updated the ingredients above

    2. Well evidently Stove Top has changed and the seasoning is already combined with the bread crumbs.

  15. I am making this tonight but I bought chicken flavored stuffing mix instead of the cornbread flavored. Will that make a difference?

    ReplyDelete
  16. do you think there is a difference if i used split chicken breast instead? they are bone in so i was wondering if there would be a difference

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have it going right now, but I added some carrots and diced red potatoes to it.

  19. I love chicken and dressing. Not sure about Stovetop Stuffing. Wonder if you could make it with real dressing? I mean the kind with cornbread, celery, onions, sage, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  20. My mom used to make a really similar recipe, but when I attempted it - I failed miserably. It also was made in the oven, so maybe that's the problem. I was so happy to find your recipe and test it out! It was perfect. Next time I'm going to add celery to it - that's about the only difference between the ingredients in the two recipes :)

    1. I have the same crockpot and high is 4 -6 hours and low is 8- 10 hours. So how do you get 4 hours on low?

    2. Use the low setting and a timer. It will be done after 4 hours.

  22. Try this recipe with adding shredded swiss cheese for the last hour cooking... amazing.

  23. I made this tonight!!! However, I only cooked on Low for 3 hours because I was afraid the chicken would be too dry. It was very tender and tasty but on the VERGE of being too dry so I would recommend only 3 hours! Otherwise, it was delish and very simple to make.

  25. I always add fresh or frozen vegetables to the chicken. Zucchini works great, one more way to use zucchini. I like frozen corn or mixed veggies or potatotes. Yummy!

  29. Okay I'm trying this today. I'm using a smaller crockpot so much chicken is pretty crowded on the bottom. I used light sour cream and cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken. Stovetop chicken stuffing mix, too. *fingers crossed* Going to check it at 3 hours to see how it looks

    2. It worked great! I was only able to use 3 chicken breasts. I would recommend using 2 cans of the soup because it seemed to need more liquid to work with. 3 hours was all it took and it was YUM!

    1. What if you set a timer on the outlet where you plug in the crock pot? Like a Christmas light timer or something similar, so that it comes on a few hours before you get home?

    2. Wouldn't that mean the products inside would go bad, cannot leave dairy and chicken out without cooking. Illness waiting to happen..

    5. How about you leave your chicken frozen, and instead of water use ice cubes? You can even put it all together in the Crockpot and freeze it. That way, it won't reach a critical temp before the timer turned the Crockpot on...maybe add 30 minutes or so to the cook time for thawing.

      Delete
  32. I am making this right now. My crockpot is smaller, so I cut the chicken breasts into strips and made the recipe in two layers. I also used cream of mushroom soup on accident, so I'm sure I will have to try it again with the chicken soup and compare. Thanks!

  33. I don't have sour cream on hand, is there anything I can use as a substitute?

    1. I am trying this recipe tonight and I am substituting Greek Yogurt for the sour cream. It is much healthier for you and tastes the same.

  34. Hey there, for the person that asked about cooking for 8 hours, you most likely can do that with starting from frozen. Here is a link about cooking chicken from frozen:
    http://www.ehow.com/facts_5477300_can-put-frozen-chicken-crockpot.html
    I am going to give this a try because I will be at hockey/ice skating with the kids for about 4 hours tonight and will be gone for 5-6 so I'm going to start this early for an 8 hour cook time... I will test the chicken temp and let you know how it goes! :)

  47. I was skeptical about this recipe but decided to try it since I was running low on groceries and happened to have all of the ingredients to make it.
    Even my daughter said it looked gross while it was cooking. But...to my surprise it turned out really well! I put frozen Chicken Tenderloins into the crockpot instead of thawed breasts and it turned out perfect. Next time I may double the sauce (sour cream and soup) as we really liked the taste of it on top of the chicken and stuffing.
    Thanks for sharing this. We will definitely be having this again!

  58. This is awesome!! Thank you so much. I have this cooking right now. I added chopped onions and minced garlic to the chicken. My chicken was purchased frozen, so I placed the chicken in the Crockpot on high with a can of cream of mushroom. Once the chicken was thawed I added the stuffing and cream of chicken/sour cream mixture. I'll let you know how it turns out.

    ReplyDelete
  59. PS: I love my gravy so I added the extra can of soup and a total of 1 cup of sour cream. Thawing the chicken took about 30 minutes.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I just made this tonight, and since my crockpot is smaller, used tenderloins instead of breasts (it's also personal choice). I cooked it on low for THREE hours, and added more sour cream and another can of cream of chicken in the last hour. Right before serving, I sprinkled it with shredded cheddar cheese, since my son prefers that over any other. It would have been pretty dry without the extra soup, but that may be because my crock pot seems to be quicker with cooking than most suggested times. I stirred once after about 2 hours, but only fluffed it at bit. Tastes AMAZING!

  68. Made this tonight. Didn't really work out as planned. I had no cream of chicken so i used cream of mushroom but follwed everything else by recipe. Threw it all together cooked for the right amount of time and i got a sloppy mushy mess. I gave it a go and it tastes REALLY good but it's just visually unappealing.
    Did I do something wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  69. I made this tonight. It was pretty darn good. Definietly done after 3 hours. The chicken was on the dry side (but to me chicken breast is dry so i'm used to it). I added a can of drained corn on top of the stuffing before the sour cream mix. It was thrown together in less than 5 minutes. Will make agian, thanks!

    1. I made this for 8 people by using 5 chicken breasts and doubling all the other ingredients. All of my kids can eat like "normal adults" and they (and I) all had half of a breast and some of the sauce/stuffing mix on top with a glass of milk and it was filling enough that I almost couldn't finish my portion and one of my 6 year olds couldn't finish his. Hope this helps! :)

  81. I am trying this for dinner tonight, I put in 5 chicken breasts (which just barely covered the bottom of my crockpot) and I am doubling the other ingredients, so here's hoping it turns out as well as everyone has said :)

    Also, hoping to feed 3 adults and 5 children with this (assuming half a breast and some of the stuffing will be enough for me and each child)... might make some bread to go along with it just to be sure. In any case, I'll be back tonight or tomorrow letting everyone know how it went! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. So, I tried it. The amount that I did was enough for everyone without the bread (half of a breast for each child and myself) was enough. We actually had a little bit left over.

      All 5 of the kids, even our pickiest eater LOVED it. So that right there already means we'll be making it again in the future. My fiance liked it enough to eat it, but didn't comment one way or the other. My future mother-in-law and I weren't crazy about it though. For my future moth-in-law, she just doesn't like stuffing, so that kind of killed it for her. For me, the stuffing was a little too dry even covered in the soup/sour cream mix. I think next time I make it, I'll try mixing the soup/sour cream mix with the stuffing before pouring it over the chicken or something... I might also try it with rice and vegetables in place of the stuffing. :)

  89. I prepared this last night. As suggested by many, I doubled the cream of chix soup and sour cream. I always buy the frozen pre-packaged breasts that you can buy from any store. I use that in all recipes that call for chicken and they all turn out fine. I cooked it on low for 3.5 hours. It turned out delicious. My pickiest child liked it as well!

  100. I have this in my slow cooker now!
    I used three partially thawed chicken breasts, one package of cornbread stuffing, 1 can of cream of chicken 1/2 cup of a creamy chicken gravy (since I didn't have any sour cream). The sauce looks a little looser than yours, but I think it's going to turn out amazing. Can't wait to try!

  101. Okay so I have to admit to being super skeptical about this recipe. I can count on one hand the number of successful crockpot dishes that I have made. If it weren't for another person commenting that she too was skeptical and had good results, I wouldn't have tried it.

    I must say dinner was delicious! I have a wide variety of pallets to please, including my hubby, a picky 7 year old and an overly opiniated teenager. Everyone ate! The hubby even commented on this being one of the best crockpot dishes I've ever made.

    Be warned, everything looks "gross" going into the crockpot, but it comes out very tasty. Will definitely be adding this to the "make again" category.
