Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing

Crockpot Chicken & Stuffing

Y’all, Seriously… Chicken & Stuffing is everything. I started making this for my family when I first started Weight Watchers. I really, really wish I could take credit for this pot full of delish, but I can’t. However, It is my  own take on it!  I found the recipe while scrolling Pinterest for some ideas, as I hadn’t been in the Weight Watchers game in quite a while, and It was near Thanksgiving, so I was REALLY craving all things comfort. But not just any comfort- specifically Thanksgiving comfort! You know the drill- Mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing… green bean casserole… all the good stuff! The recipe I found was a little dry and needed some pep, so I bedazzled it a bit into what it is today, and it is perfection! My sweet friends Lauren and Alyssa (who also happen to be sisters) also have a scrumptious looking recipe for this, and they just so happen to call it ‘Thanksgiving in a Crock Pot’, because they are geniuses. Why didn’t I think of that?! Anyhow, here’s their version on Instagram if you’d like to check it out. They share all their recipes via IG, and they definitely have A LOT of good ones on there! I just love them. 

Now back to this. 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 big ol’ batch of my Homestyle Cauli-Tater Mash and then plop a nice big scoop of this on top. Ohmylanta! Heaven on a plate, guys. Heaven on a plate. 

Seriously, read my post. grab your keys. get in the car. refrain from getting a speeding ticket, but drive as fast as you legally can (I think 5 over is fine in most states), grab these ingredients, and get back to the kitchen! 

There’s more to this recipe that makes it amazing than just the taste.

A) It’s one of the most simple recipes to throw together and put in the crockpot on a busy morning, so you’ll have some delicious dinner to come home to.

B) 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, I promise!

 

Here’s what you do:

 

Chicken & Stuffng

Grab a mixing bowl and add 2 can of cream of chicken soup and one box stove top stuffing mix. (I didn’t say it was fancy, I said it was GOOD!)

Now chop up two ribs of celery and a small onion (or just add two tbs of dried minced onion) You don’t have to do this step, but I personally think it adds much more flavor! Side note: I’ve also diced up carrots and it was divine. I forgot the carrots at the store for this one though

Now grab your crockpot, lightly spray the sides and bottom with cooking spray, and add 2 lbs of chicken breast.

Now pour your chicken broth over the chicken

Now spread the stuffing mixture across the top and press it down into the broth and chicken so it gets a little moist. 

Now turn the crockpot to low… sit back, relax, go to work, go apple picking, go do whatever your heart desires and come back in about 7- 8 hours to your wonderful smelling kitchen and enjoy!

Now truth be told, this not the prettiest of foods, but what it lacks in presentation it makes up more than enough in taste.

Y’all know I had to jazz it up a little bit for the photo with some fancy chopped parsley and a couple tablespoons of cheddar.. which by the way. Add some cheddar. It’ll taste even BETTER. 

 

and it’s stacked on a delicious bed of Homestyle Cauli-Tater Mash

  1. How much chicken broth is used..1 or 2 cans?

  2. Is one serving both the chicken and stuffing to equal one cup? This looks so delicious and I need some new delicious things to add to my go tos. Starting weight watchers again after about 13 years (high school- yikes!) and four kids and I need yummy things to look forward, I’ve struck out in the recipe department lately. Looking forward to see what else you have cooking up!

    • Hi Amanda, Yep! When the chicken and stuffing is done cooking in the crockpot you basically mix it all together. the chicken will be so tender that you’ll barely have to run a fork through it. Some people separate it out and keep the chicken whole, but I feel like for WW purposes it’s easier to mix it all together and portion the points that way. Have you tried my B&G bake or my cheesy sausage hash brown bake? although I have heard some really terrific feedback for all of my recipes being family friends those two seem to have hit it out of the park in the family department. =) Best of luck! Let me know if you need any other help. -Star

  3. I can’t even begin to tell you how much we LOVED this recipe. So easy, delicious, filling and comforting – and for so little points damage! Thank you so much, I can’t wait to try others!!

    • Kerry, that makes me SO happy! I’m so happy you and your family enjoyed! It is definetely a serious family favorite around here. And I’ll never get over how easy and scrumptious it is while still being low calorie/points. I can’t wait for you to try others! I hope you enjoy those too. Best, Star

  4. Soooo good!! I have made a few chicken and stuffing recipes lately, one on the crockpot and one in the oven. This is the best chicken and stuffing recipe I’ve ever made, the chicken was so tender, the stuffing was not dry at all, just so good! I like how you add the chicken broth, what a difference that makes.

    • Katy, Thanks SO much! What a compliment knowing that there are so many out there! Chicken broth adds so much flavor especially when slow cooking it’s hard for me NOT to use it. I’m so happy you enjoyed!! Best, Star

    Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!! It was delicious! My husband and daughter loved it , and they are both picky eaters! We will be making this many times this winter! Keep up the good work, this Weight Watcher really appreciates it!!

  6. I made this last week and oh boy! This was so good. Instead of using boneless breast I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and had enough for another meal and lunch for myself. LOVE LOVE LOVE this recipe. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Oh my goodness! I made this for my family they absolutely loved it! Our two older boys cleared their plates! Thank you so much for all you amazing recipes!

  8. Cindy Baldwin

    This was wonderful!! Made this last night for 7 of us and everyone raved over it!! Thank you so much for all your great recipes!!

  9. This honestly smells like heaven. We LOVED it, especially over the mashed potatoes and cauliflower!

    • One of the best parts about this is the way it makes the house smells. I love having a lazy day, and smelling this cook all day long! I’m so happy you loved it with the tater cauli mash!

  10. Leah Manecke

    Hi Star,
    Can you please tell me what size box you used for the stuffing? Believe it or not, stuffing is one of my triggers, so between being on WW and my love of stuffing, I need to be as accurate as possible. Thank you!
    Linda

  13. Just made this today and it is delicious. It is so easy to make. I put it on top of the Weight Watchers Skinny Pasta. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

  14. Oh my gosh, this is so good. Easy to make. The house smells amazing while it is cooking. I serve mine on top of riced cauliflower. Thank you so much for this delicious recipe.

  15. Hi Star, I am making this for the first time and it’s really soupy. Just to confirm, is it indeed 2 cans of cream of chicken? I did use Pepperidge farm stuffing cubes but I measured out 6 Oz and actually added a little extra since it was so wet. Do you leave the lid off at the end?

    • Hi Jess, It is two cans of soup. I have found that when using pepperidge farm stuffing mix it doesn’t seem to set as well in any recipes. Whenever I use store-bought stuffing mix- it’s usually stove top. It just seems to work best for me. If you make it again and want to use the pepperidge farm stuffing, I would add a little less chicken broth, maybe just 1 1/4 cups. I hope that helps!
