There’s nothing better than having a delicious, creamy supper waiting when you walk in the door. And this chicken stuffing casserole totally does that for you.
This is a super simple recipe. It only takes a few minutes to toss it together. You’ll love it when you walk in the door to the delicious smells. Best of all you can dish it straight out of the slow cooker…There’s no additional steps required.
By the way…a short disclaimer here. I have a lot of slow cookers. Several different sizes and shapes…but I use them all. This one (the poor thing) has been used almost to death. It’s interior is very stained. Please excuse that. I promise, it isn’t dirty though!
For this particular recipe I used frozen peas and carrots…but that doesn’t mean you have to. You can use just about any frozen or fresh veggie here. The frozen bag size I usually use is 12 ounces. How many cups that equals will vary with what type of veggie it is…but I’m guessing it’ll be between two and three cups for most.
Next layer in about 1 1/2 pounds of chicken breasts. The really thin cuts or chicken tenderloins work best with this recipe.
Now sprinkle on your stuffing mix. Nothing gets mixed with it, that gets poured over the top in the next step.
Next...Mix together the remaining ingredients and pour it over the top.
Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
I know there’s a bit of guess work there but if you’re using a bigger crockpot and it isn’t as full it will cooker faster. Plus some crockpots cook faster than others. I don’t think it matters what brand, they just vary a bit.
You can also cook it on high but you’ll need to watch it pretty close as the edges can burn AND sometimes the chicken won’t get done. Ubber gross I know. Honestly I usually cook it on low because of both those factors.
And here is your end result. Delicious and creamy and ready when you walk in the door. Super simple and it works with any vegetable you want to use. You can also change up the meat…though honestly I’ve only tried chicken, turkey, pork chops and ham steaks.
