Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing
Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing is so easy to make with only 4 ingredients and a slow cooker! My family loves this easy dinner recipe! I love how easy it is to prepare! They always ask for more when I serve this for dinner.
That’s right this recipe has only 4 ingredients, that you probably already have in your pantry like I did. For Mother’s Day I got a brand new Green Bay Packers Crockpot and I was excited to use it. So I started looking up crockpot meals and found this one. I had all the ingredients on hand so I went to crockin’!
All you need for this one dish meal is boneless chicken breasts, Stove Top Cornbread Stuffing, can of cream of chicken soup and sour cream. My family loves this dinner recipe! I love how easy it is to prepare! They always ask for more. Remember that all crockpots vary in cooking times so always start checking it after 3 hours.
Next you mix the can of cream of chicken soup with 1/2 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup water, then place on top of the stuffing.
>Pour on top of stuffing mix. Place lid on crockpot and cook on low for 4 hours (check it at 3 hours). Fluff and serve. I like to serve this with green beans and mashed potatoes. I hope you enjoy this delicious Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing as much as we do! It is soon to become a family favorite once you do.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was SO yummy!….didn’t have sourcream so used creamcheese and my soup was like a chicken dumpling.
I used a half cup the first time I used cream cheese.
How much cream cheese did you use?
I have made this before and we love it!
Coming over from Miz Helen’s. I LOVE my crockpot and am always looking for good recipes. This one looks hardy! Love your crockpot too!
I love Chicken and Stuffing, this is a great Crockpot Recipe to try. Thank you so much for sharing your delicious recipe with Full Plate Thursday.
Have a great weekend!
The perfect busy weekday meal. (and I love your Packers crockpot!) Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday at Organized 31.
can I use the original stuffing mix instead of the cornbread mix?? thanks, Carm
Yes for sure!
Can I make this without the sour cream?
Yes but I would sub with greek yogurt or cream cheese.
I just put this in the crock! I can’t wait to try this tonight!
Hi I made this tonight followed all directions exactly and it ended up sticking to sides and bottom of crock pot and kinda burnt looking. I have never ever had anything burn in my crockpot. waiting to see what hubby and kids think of it though hopefully it still turned out ok
Crockpots often cook at different temperatures – sorry that happened!
Get those crockpot liners. I use them all the time and they’re great! No cleanup!
Great tip! That really helps!
OMG this sounds so good!!
I have made this before and it turned out delish! However, I used a can of cream of mushroom and a cup of chicken broth on top of the cream and chicken and sour cream. I think without those it may have turned out to dry. Also, my chicken was frozen when I put it in. Cooked on low about 5 hours and everything came out great. Tender chicken and fluffy stuffing. Making this again tonight and might throw in some frozen veggies!
I just put this in the crockpot. Instead of leaving the chicken breast whole I cut mine into pieces and also used chicken broth instead of water. I love crockpot recipes and this sounds yummy so hopefully it tastes good.
Has anyone tried layering this differently? Chicken on bottom then soup mixture, then stuffing mix? Let me know if it turned out good!
It gets dried out.
Tasted great, but the chicken was overcooked and dry at just 3.5 hours. Kind of disappointed
I made this tonight and followed everything listed except reduced cook time to 3 hours and only made 2 chicken breasts. Came out SO good! I’ll definitely keep this recipe for another cold night. Husband loved it too, as did my picky toddler. Thanks for sharing!
What size of a crockpot did you use?
Just was wondering as it’s cooking, does the stuffing start to look like mush? Mine is and wondering if I did anything wrong.
What size crockpot did you use?
I’ve made this in the oven before but never in a crockpot. This crockpot method seems so easy!
Are you supposed to put the stuffing in dry, or prepare it using box directions and add it like that??
Just pour it on dry 🙂
LOVE your crockpot and SO glad I can use cream cheese (ran out of sour cream!) We’re trying this for dinner tonight! 🙂
I make this but with an added layer, between the stuffing and soup of a bag of frozen green beans. I’ll admit it doesn’t look appetitizing to me when done (for that I think without is definitely the way to go) BUT it is delicious and no fail way to have the entire meal ready when we walk in the door!! Yummy!!
Love that idea!
I made this and it burnt on the bottom and the whole thing was very dark in color and mushy/pastey. It sounded good but wasn’t. I work so I have to cook on low for 9 hours.
That is too long for this recipe. We cooked it on low for only 4 hours.
I’m going to try this!
I’ve done crockpot stuffing before and have a couple good tricks:
1. Line the sides of the crockpot with foil to prevent sticking.
2. Place a kitchen towel over the top and then put the lid on. It will prevent condensation from going back into the dish which can make the stuffing really soggy.
Can boneless skinless chicken thighs be used instead?
I made this last night for dinner and it was a big hit! Just like chicken casserole, but a little bit easier. 🙂 I think next time I might chop my chicken into chunks. I used a 5 quart crock and the 4 hours time was perfect.
This was awesome!!! It was not expensive to make and my boyfriend and I ate every bite! Thanks for the great recipe, the only thing we will be doing differently is doubling the recipe!
I made this for supper tonight and it was delicious. I would definately recommend it to anyone. I might try using a little white wine in place of the water next time. Thanks for the recipe, its a keeper!
Love this recipe! I use the unbreaded chicken strips instead of the breasts and it is awesome!
Yummy! Made this for dinner tonight and was really pleased with it overall, but it seemed a little dry. I think that might have been my error, though. Thanks for sharing!
What size can of cream of chicken
Just a regular soup can size.
can i put this all together in the crock pot tonight, stick it in the fridge and start cooking it tomorrow on my lunch hour?
Yes, you can!
Is the chicken raw or cooked before putting in crockpot?
Trying this tonight with full fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream (bc of the lactose content). Fingers’ crossed!
Made this for dinner tonight. Very good. Will certainly make again. Couple of changes for my taste – will season chicken before putting it in crockpot and will likely add peas or mixed veggies.
When I cook this do I have to stir it at all in the 4 hours it cooks? I just don’t want to chicken on the bottom to burn. Or do you just put it all together and leave it alone for 4 hours?
You do not stir. Just put it together and leave it alone for 4 hours. Every crockpot is different in terms of how hot it gets so you may want to check it at 3 hours and then again every 15 minutes the first time.
Also can I cut up the chicken I’m cubes before o cook it? Would that effect the cook time?
We haven’t tried it but you are welcome too. Not sure what the effect will be.
I make something like this. The only difference is that I added broccoli on the bottom and mixed the stuffing mix and cream of chicken mix together.
Would you use a whole pack of cream cheese instead if the sour cream?
You could sub with yogurt or blended cottage cheese if you don’t have or like sour cream.
Hi, any advice to someone trying to triple the recipe? 🙂
What size crockpot do you have?
I have 2 crockpots. One is a 7 quart and the other is a 4 quart. I think I’m just going to double it now. Any tips you may have would be appreciated!
Can you use a bag of stuffing instead of Stove Top?
We have not tried it but it may work.
Can u cook them on high?
Be sure to cut your time in half.
What if I didn’t layer the incredients in the same order?
What order did you do?
I put the soup mixture directly on the chicken and then the stuffing on top. I’ve made this several times before and just wasn’t thinking.
As long as it tastes good 🙂
I don’t like sour cream, yogurt or cream cheese. What will happen if I don’t add it?
You need something creamy but what do you normally sub for these when you are cooking?
Just made this tonight- it was delicious!!!! We couldn’t get enough!
I needed a chicken recipe for tonight. This might be just the one. thx
🙂 It is so easy and good!
Hi so I am making this right now but I cooked the stuffing as directed on the box then put it in will it still be ok?
I would not add the stuffing for the entire time to the recipe or it will dry out and burn is my concern.
This is cookin now…smells like a mini TGivin Dinner…….servin with green beans and masha taters gonna have cranberry sauce also….. Cant wait to try….TY soooo much for the recipe….
Hello can I use two boxes of stuffing and add half of bar cream cheese and sour cream?
We haven’t tried that.
At the store there was only 3 chicken breasts in the package. How much should I adjust the recipe?
I wouldn’t worry! 🙂
I commented on “crock pot chicken and stuffing”
Can I make this with cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken??
Yes you can! Or Cream of Celery would work too.
Could I cook this on high and if so for how long ? I’m short on time! Thanks
You bet! https://www.stockpilingmoms.com/2015/02/slow-cooker-conversions/
My kids LOVE LOVE LOVE this
It doesn’t tell me how I would convert this recipe from 4 hours on low to how long on high?
Can I use 4 drumsticks instead of chicken breasts?
I would guess that it would take 2-3 drumsticks to equal 1 chicken breast. Boneless Chicken Thighs might be a better choice though.
can i omit the sour cream?
You can use instead – 1 cup yogurt, plus 1 tablespoon flour, plus 2 teaspoons water.
I didn’t use sour cream because I didn’t have any on hand, and it was all right. I did add about a quarter cup of chicken broth to the canned soup. The dish turned out fine.
Have you tried this with frozen chicken? I am not sure I took my chicken out of the freezer in time.
Yep – works perfectly!
Well I’m trying your recipe it looks great my question is I did not have chicken breast only chicken legs and I put it in in your order however I did not have any cream cheese or yogurt or sour cream so what I did use was a pack of chicken gravy two cans of cream of chicken with water and mixed it together in my stuffing and poured it over the chicken legs we will see in about 4 hours how it goes
Hungry for some comfort food and this recipe looks like it might hit the mark. Although made in a Green Bay Packers crock pot, it will taste infinitely better in a Philadelphia Eagles slow cooker! (Thanks for posting it and for taking a little “ribbing.!”) S.
Love it! 🙂
So, I made this last weekend and it was delicious (chicken and stuffing). As I am a one-person household, I cannot tell you how nice it was to come home after a long day at work (office) and have this to pull out and reheat. Yummy and thanks for sharing this recipe. Looking forward to the 2015 NFL season which begins Sept. 17th — are you ready for some football? 🙂 Thanks again…..S from Sacramento, CA (a Philadelphia transplant!) Go Eagles!
That would be a “Steelers” Crockpot for me!!!
how ong does it take to cook if schiken breasts are frozen?
Same time 🙂
By fluffing do you mean stirring?
Yes, with a fork. Fluffing up the stuffing.
Do you need to use the cornbread stuffing or could you just use any stuffing?
Thank you for this great recipe! I am collecting crock pot meals that only require 5 or less ingredients because it helps so much on busy mornings to just dump things in a run out the door. This is a great addition to my collection! One question… I usually get meals started in the morning and we don’t eat dinner until 6pm. 4 hours for cook time is on the short side for me… it will probably be left on warm for another 4 hours. Do you think that will work okay?
I am afraid it would dry out the stuffing on this one.
If I wanted more stuffing, should I just double the water (and stuffing) or add more soup too?
I would double the stuffing/water/soup.
In the crock pot as we speak, should be ready for kickoff.
I am a little confused, however. how do you make something in a Green Bay Crock pot without any cheese in the recipe?
So true! 🙂
I have this in my crockpot right now but I set it for 4 hours on High. I think the Low setting would be 6 to 7 hours. Has anyone thoroughly cooked their chicken on low in four hours? I did check other similar recipes online and most said high for 4 hours so here’s hoping this turns out well as I want to make it for company next week.
I made it and found it to be very bland. The next day I added sautéed chopped celery and onions with salt, pepper, and a shake of garlic powder and it was amazing.
I made this yesterday, and after having forgot to turn on the crockpot, I transferred it to a baking dish and put it in the oven (350° for 1 hour) and it was great. My family ate every bit and I thought there would be leftovers. 🙂
Has anyone tried this w/ low fat or fat free versions of the ingredients?
No, we haven’t but I bet it would work!
Can I use chicken stuffing instead of cornbread and would it be okay to double the recipe in a bigger crockpot with the same yummy results?
Instead of the sour cream because I didn’t have any and wasn’t running to the store at 10 o’clock at night, I used a chicken gravy packet and 3/4 cup of water instead of the 1/4. It turned out great.
I also used Cream of Mushroom instead of chicken. Turned out delicious.
Do you mix the box stuffing mix with the spices that are in the box before putting in crockpot or
just the stuffing part. Thank you
Have you tried putting frozen vegetables in it?
Yes – green beans and it works AWESOME!
Frozen broccoli works great also, just run the package under cold water for a few moments to break it up a little bit so you can spread it evenly in the Crock-Pot?
Would mayo work instead of sour cream?
Actually greek yogurt is a great substitute!
Can we use chicken broth instead of water?
Family loves this recipe
I have one of those JennieO freezer to oven turkey breast (2-3 lbs). Could I use that as a substitute for the chicken breasts. If so, would the time change from 4 hours to something different
I would think so – https://www.stockpilingmoms.com/2014/10/how-to-cook-a-turkey-breast-in-the-slow-cooker/
Would it be all right to cut the chicken up before putting it in the crock pot? Also, I’d like to make about 6 servings, so I will just add more of everything.
This recipe is very good, but found the chicken breast to be a little dry. When I made it the second time I used skinless boneless chicken thighs and found it to be much better.
Can I use the bagged brown berry stuffing instead of stove top? How many pounds of chicken in your recipe?
Should not be a problem! 2 lbs.
I like to always cook my chicken beforehand amd shred it. I wonder if i mix all of these ingredients together with the shredded chicken will it come out ok?
Yes, I think so!
Unfortunately, this recipe was a huge fail. I used frozen chicken, and after 4 hours, the chicken was still frozen and the stuffing that maneuvered to the bottom, burned. Thankfully I used a liner. I’ve pulled the chicken, removed the liner, and now am trying to finish cooking the chicken in some vegetable stock and cream of mushroom soup.
I looked forward to this, but it failed. Trying to salvage it.
You should not use frozen chicken for this recipe.
Do you think it would work if I mix this all up and put it in the frig in the morning and have my husband take it out and turn it on at noon?
I am not sure as it might get too mushy?
How about adding in frozen corn with some frozen green beans?
That sounds yummy!
I just put mine on but my chicken is frozen one post says you can use frozen chicken and another said no plz tell me it will be ok
Frozen is no problem. It will add a little more liquid as a it cooks though.
I’m cooking this right now. It’s been cooking about 2 hours and all the soup/sour cream/water is still setting on top is that what it’s supposed to do? I figured it would sink into the stuffing.
I would stir it up well!
This recipe is very versatile and easy to switch ingredients for different tastes and styles. It’s an all around recipe any one can style and flavor to their families favorites.
Is it necessary to use sour cream? Can I use mayo instead?
I think you could use greek yogurt, cream of chicken soup or mayo instead.
It’s wonderful! I’m making it for the second time. I use boneless thighs. It’s even better as leftovers
Awesome! I love to use boneless chicken thighs too!
The recipe says to use “4 Chicken Breasts”.
That’s alot of chicken and didn’t even fit in my crockpot.
Could you possibly mean “4 Half Breasts”
Found this recipe and has been using it for the last few years. Easy and delicious.
Awesome! So glad you found us!
