Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing

Y’all, Seriously… Chicken & Stuffing is everything. I started making this for my family when I first started Weight Watchers. I really, really wish I could take credit for this pot full of delish, but I can’t. However, It is my  own take on it!  I found the recipe while scrolling Pinterest for some ideas, as I hadn’t been in the Weight Watchers game in quite a while, and It was near Thanksgiving, so I was REALLY craving all things comfort. But not just any comfort- specifically Thanksgiving comfort! You know the drill- Mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing… green bean casserole… all the good stuff! The recipe I found was a little dry and needed some pep, so I bedazzled it a bit into what it is today, and it is perfection! My sweet friends Lauren and Alyssa (who also happen to be sisters) also have a scrumptious looking recipe for this, and they just so happen to call it ‘Thanksgiving in a Crock Pot’, because they are geniuses. Why didn’t I think of that?! Anyhow, here’s their version on Instagram if you’d like to check it out. They share all their recipes via IG, and they definitely have A LOT of good ones on there! I just love them.

Now back to this. In all honesty, this is one of my favorite recipes. I don’t make it that much because I always feel like I’m cheating my healthier lifestyle somehow. It tastes THAT indulgent. I like to make a big ol’ batch of my Homestyle Cauli-Tater Mash and then plop a nice big scoop of this on top. Ohmylanta! Heaven on a plate, guys. Heaven on a plate.

Seriously, read my post. grab your keys. get in the car. refrain from getting a speeding ticket, but drive as fast as you legally can (I think 5 over is fine in most states), grab these ingredients, and get back to the kitchen!

There’s more to this recipe that makes it amazing than just the taste.

A) It’s one of the most simple recipes to throw together and put in the crockpot on a busy morning, so you’ll have some delicious dinner to come home to.

B) When you walk in the door, your house will smell like you’ve been making Thanksgiving Dinner… and if you’ve had a bad day, you’ll forget about it within moments, I promise!

Here’s what you do:

Chicken & Stuffng

Grab a mixing bowl and add 2 can of cream of chicken soup and one box stove top stuffing mix. (I didn’t say it was fancy, I said it was GOOD!)

Now chop up two ribs of celery and a small onion (or just add two tbs of dried minced onion) You don’t have to do this step, but I personally think it adds much more flavor! Side note: I’ve also diced up carrots and it was divine. I forgot the carrots at the store for this one though

Now grab your crockpot, lightly spray the sides and bottom with cooking spray, and add 2 lbs of chicken breast.

Now pour your chicken broth over the chicken

Now spread the stuffing mixture across the top and press it down into the broth and chicken so it gets a little moist.

Now turn the crockpot to low… sit back, relax, go to work, go apple picking, go do whatever your heart desires and come back in about 7- 8 hours to your wonderful smelling kitchen and enjoy!

Now truth be told, this not the prettiest of foods, but what it lacks in presentation it makes up more than enough in taste.

Y’all know I had to jazz it up a little bit for the photo with some fancy chopped parsley and a couple tablespoons of cheddar.. which by the way. Add some cheddar. It’ll taste even BETTER.

and it’s stacked on a delicious bed of Homestyle Cauli-Tater Mash!

    Glad I read the reviews about it not looking pretty But the taste makes up for it. I used cream of mushroom instead of cream of chicken but other than that made as directed. I wish the stuffing stayed more stuffing-like but overall this was super easy to make and tastes yummy. Definitely doesn’t seem like it would be WW friendly since it’s so rich and seems like comfort food! Another bonus! Now I’m going to be reading more of your recipes!

    This was so easy and so good! I had everything needed in my pantry, and it only took a few minutes to prep. Like Star mentions, it’s not the prettiest but it is one of the tastiest WW friendly recipes! This will definitely be on our regular rotation.

    Somtimes the phrase “you eat with your eyes” shouldn’t be used. This is not pretty but good gracious it is so freaking delicious! Seriously! Holy Thanksgiving Batman! I totally encourage everyone to try this! @wls.mombod

    1. HAHA I agree. I’m queen of “it doesn’t always have to be pretty to be good”

    This recipe is so filling and comforting! I credit this recipe with getting me successfully started on WW! I made a batch each of my first two weeks and ate some for either lunch or dinner every day during those first two hard weeks. This filled me up so much with only a few points and that totally helped me to be successful in getting started! I still love to go back to it now!

    I’m such a fan of your recipes! I stumbled upon this one just a couple weeks ago when I rejoined WW and I’ve made it twice since then. It is simple to throw together in the crockpot and it is a very comforting dish!

  6. Hey Star!! Huge fan of all of your recipes (well, all the ones I’ve tried so far). Just wondering if I could swap the chicken breast for boneless turkey breast? I wanted to be thanksgiving-y, but I’m cooking for just my husband and I, so we didn’t need a whole turkey.

    1. Hey Linda, Yes use the seasoning mixture it comes with. I hope you enjoy!

  7. When I put the nutritional values in my WW calculator it comes up as 8 freestyle points but if I change the calories to 240 it comes out as 5 freestyle points. Am I doing something wrong?

    1. Hey Beth, The nutritional information includes all of the ingredients for people who don’t follow WW, but count calories. WW has zero point foods so the point value is unique. I hope that makes sense! If you’d like to double check points you can use the WW recipe builder on the app or their website on desktop. I hope that helps!
