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.

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.
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.
165 degrees F. You can check this using a meat thermometer.
Yes, but I don’t recommend it for this recipe.
