Alright, so I don’t want to alarm anyone, but I often eat a bowl of Stove Top Stuffing for breakfast.
Hold up. Don’t leave me. I swear I’m not insane.

How To Make Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing:
Mix: Add a bag of dry stuffing cubes (not Stove Top) to the slow cooker, along with some chopped celery and onion.
Soup: Stir in the cream of chicken soup, a bit of broth, and then season it with a little sage.
Chicken: Season your chicken with salt and pepper (feel free to add additional spices here!) and pop it right on top of the stuffing mix. The juices from the chicken will drip down and add moisture and flavor to the stuffing.
Slow Cook: After preparing the chicken and stuffing ingredients you can cover your crockpot and slow cook on low heat for 4 hours and 30 minutes or until the chicken has cooked through and shreds easily.
Shred the chicken together with the stuffing and serve! This crock pot stuffing and chicken recipe is like Thanksgiving goodness you can eat any time of the year!
I would recommend putting the chicken on top of the other ingredients, not on the bottom!
A lot of readers have tried putting the chicken on the bottom (I have too, it seems like the obvious way to do it), but I don’t love it that way!
The chicken will release a lot of juice and if it’s at the bottom, the stuffing on the bottom is soggy and the stuffing on top is dry.
If you put the chicken on top of the stuffing, the juices will soak down into it and it’ll all come out with the right consistency!
Feel free to increase or decrease the liquids in this recipe to suit your tastes, but I’ve tested it and I think the amount I used is the best!
I recommend that you make this a whole big feast and serve it with my roasted sweet potatoes and pumpkin crunch cake to really bring home that Thanksgiving at random times of the year feel.
Or just be normal and eat it with a salad. Whatevs.
Hope you guys enjoy!
You can keep this recipe stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 to 4 days. It may get a little soggier over time.
I’ve never tried this recipe using frozen chicken. It could probably work but it may add more liquid than you’d want. I’d recommend using fresh chicken breast!
