Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing

I am so sad I did not get a picture of this glorious meal. It was beyond delish, even S liked it and he rarely likes anything I make. This recipe I found by googling crock pot recipes, call the pinterest police I’ve gone rouge. The site is called iSaveAtoZ and it has some amazing recipes not just for the crock pot, eggnog cookies anyone? The recipe for the chicken and stuffing can be found here.

So again I had to tweak this one based on what I had on hand and for the fact that I didn’t need 4 servings. I tweaked this one far less than the pizza pasta recipe, but the only real tweaks I made were cutting the recipe in half and using canned green beans instead of frozen. Here’s how I made mine:

I put two frozen chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot, the recipe states to use defrosted, but I chose this recipe last minute so frozen it was.

Next came the stuffing, S and I LOVE stuffing so I really covered the chicken breasts till you couldn’t even tell there was anything under the stuffing.

I used one can of cream of chicken soup and ½ cup of sour cream. Now I’m not sure how they got the soup mixture to look like that in the picture (I’m guessing they actually smoothed it over the top), but mine did not look like that. Mine looked like globs on top of stuffing, could I have smoothed it over the top? Sure, but really who was has time for that when the recipe clearly states to just top it over the stuffing (that really leaves it open to interpretation). Either way whether you smooth or glob it still tastes pretty darn good.

I completely drained the green beans before adding them to the top of the mixture. I really should have been paying more attention when I was grabbing the can out of the pantry, because I added cut green beans not whole and astetically it would have looked better with whole, but again who am I trying to impress.

Last but not least I added ½ cup of water to the top.

Since the chicken was frozen when I started I turned the crock pot on high for about 4 hours, after that I switched it down to low. When I switched the heat I fluffed up the top mixture and stirred it a bit to make sure the stuffing was getting enough moisture.

Let me tell you the smells coming from my kitchen while this was cooking were amazing. It was like a whole Thanksgiving meal in one beautiful, easy to clean up pot. The chicken was so moist and almost hit the melt in your mouth level of amazing. I would give this one five stars and will be making it again in the near future. The added bonus of this recipe is that the cost is pretty low while not being horribly unhealthy.


As always let me know if you’ve tried this, something similar or just think it sounds amazing. Stay tuned for future crock pot madness.
