Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing

My recipe for Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing tastes and smells just like Thanksgiving dinner! This recipe will be one of the easiest comfort foods you ever make. Pile a handful of ingredients into the crockpot and come back to a soul warming meal that totally hits that comfort food spot!

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 batch of mashed potatoes, Homestyle Cauli-Tater Mash OR Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Mash followed by a big ol’ spoonful of chicken and stuffing! Ohmylanta! Heaven on a plate, y’all. Heaven on a plate.

There’s more to Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing that makes it amazing than just the taste.
1. It’s one of the most simple recipes to throw together and put in the crockpot on a busy morning, so you’ll have total comfort food to come home to.

2. 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.

Ingredients for Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing:

  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2-3 ribs of celery, diced (about 1 cup total)
  • 2-3 large carrots, diced (about 1 cup total)
  • 1 box of stove top stuffing mix (lower sodium or regular will work)
  • 2 cans of 98% fat free condensed Cream of chicken soup (cream of celery, cream of mushroom soup, or a mix of two will work)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast or boneless skinless chicken thighs

How to make Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing:

  1. In a bowl add carrots, onion, celery, cream of chicken soup, and one box stove top dry stuffing mix.
  2. Spray crockpot with cooking spray.

  5. Now turn the crock pot to low and cook for 6-7 hours.
  6. Sit back & relax, go to work, go apple picking, or whatever your heart desires then come back to this!

Now truth be told, this not the prettiest recipe, but what it lacks in looks it makes up more than enough in flavor. I promise.

What to serve with Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing?

Storage & reheating:

Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing reheats well in the microwave! Put it on a plate or in a bowl and cover with a lightly damp paper towel. Reheat for 1-2 minutes depending on microwave. I love leftovers of this meal. In a container with a tightly closed lid it should stay good for 4-5 days.


Can I put raw chicken in slow cooker?

Yes! It’s safe to raw cook chicken in slow cooker. Slow cookers and crockpots are made to cook all different types of meat from raw. The heat from the pot and low cooking time in a covered container makes slow cooking meat safe.

What temperature should Chicken and Stuffing be cooked to?

165 degrees F. You can check this using a meat thermometer.

Can you put frozen chicken in a slow cooker?

Yes, but I don’t recommend it for this recipe.

    Love this recipe! So simple and so full of flavor. We served it over mashed potatoes and it was great. I think it would also be great with some egg noodles, or add the leftovers to a casserole pan with diced up Grands biscuits to make a chicken pot pie bake.

    Made this just this week for the first time! Super easy and so tasty. I used frozen chicken breasts, threw everything in the crockpot and had a delicious meal when I got home from work! Served ours over mashed potatoes with some brussel sprouts on the side.

    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!
