Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 package (6-8 oz) stuffing mix (such as Stove Top)
  • Optional: 1/2 cup frozen peas or mixed vegetables for added color and nutrition
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Place the boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, and water. Mix until well combined.
  3. Pour the soup mixture evenly over the chicken breasts.
  4. Sprinkle the dry stuffing mix evenly over the soup mixture. If you’d like to add vegetables, scatter them over the stuffing mix.
  5. Cover the slow cooker with its lid.
  6. Cook on the low setting for 4-6 hours or on the high setting for 2-3 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through, and the stuffing is tender.
  7. About 30 minutes before serving, use a fork to gently fluff and mix the stuffing. This helps it absorb the liquid evenly.
  8. If desired, season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve your delicious Chicken and Stuffing Casserole directly from the slow cooker. The chicken should be tender and flavorful, and the stuffing will have soaked up all the savory goodness.

Cook’s Notes:

  1. Chicken Choice: Opt for boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. You can also use chicken thighs if you prefer dark meat or have them on hand.
  2. Customize with Veggies: While the base recipe is delicious on its own, you can add a pop of color and nutrition by incorporating 1/2 cup of frozen peas or mixed vegetables. Simply scatter them over the stuffing mix before cooking.
  3. Season to Taste: Adjust the seasoning according to your preference. The cream of chicken soup and stuffing mix already provide some saltiness, so taste before adding additional salt. Freshly ground black pepper or herbs like thyme or rosemary can be used for added flavor.
  4. Fluff the Stuffing: About 30 minutes before serving, use a fork to gently fluff and mix the stuffing. This helps evenly distribute the liquid and ensures the stuffing is perfectly cooked.
  5. Optional Extras: Feel free to customize this dish further by adding diced onions, celery, or mushrooms to the mix for added flavor and texture.
  6. Slow Cooker Variations: Slow cookers can vary in cooking times, so keep an eye on the dish as it cooks. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C), and the stuffing should be tender. Adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  7. Serving Suggestions: This casserole is a complete meal on its own, but you can pair it with a side salad or steamed vegetables for a well-rounded dinner.
  8. Leftovers: Leftover Chicken and Stuffing Casserole can be refrigerated and reheated. Add a splash of chicken broth or water when reheating to keep it moist.
  9. Make It Your Own: This recipe serves as a versatile base. Get creative by adding your favorite herbs, spices, or even a sprinkle of grated cheese for an extra layer of flavor.
  10. Enjoy the Simplicity: The beauty of this recipe lies in its simplicity and convenience. It’s a perfect choice for busy days when you want a comforting homemade meal without the hassle.
