Extra juicy chicken and savory stuffing simmer together in the crock pot with your favorite vegetables for an easy, comforting meal that the family will love!
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, salted and peppered if desired.
1 teaspoon dry parsley
10.5 oz. cream of chicken soup
8 oz. sour cream, (equivalent to 1 cup)
6 oz. box stuffing mix
¾ cup chicken broth
2 cups green beans, fresh or frozen
1 cup baby carrots
Optional stuffing additions:
1/2 cup onions, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup crumbled sausage, (cooked or raw)
2 teaspoons dry rosemary
Place the chicken on the bottom of the crock pot and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
In a large bowl, mix together the soup, sour cream, stuffing, and half of the broth. Layer the stuffing mix over the chicken.
To keep the vegetables separate from the stuffing, place a layer of foil over the stuffing, then place your vegetables on top of the foil. Poke holes on the bottom of the foil to allow the moisture to circulate instead of collecting on the top of the foil. You can also layer the vegetables right on top of the stuffing if you’d prefer.
Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-7.
Before eating, check on the stuffing. If you’d prefer additional moisture, add the rest of the chicken broth, stir, and heat for an additional 10 minutes.
I personally like to stir the stuffing mixture occasionally to gauge the moisture level, but this isn’t necessary.
If the stuffing seems too moist for your liking, leave the lid off the crock pot for the last 30-40 minutes of cooking, or until your desired consistency is achieved. You can also pop it in the oven to firm it up a bit if needed. (I never need to, but people’s texture preferences vary.)
