Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

This is one of those meals we hardly ever have at our house, but it's my husband's favorite so I  made it this week. (Honestly, he likes this one even better but using my slow cooker once a week is oh-so-worth it so I decided to make the slow cooker version instead.)

If you need a super easy meal mixed up in 5 minutes, this one's for you. Such a great way to get dinner done in a pinch!



Slow Cooker Chicken & Dressing


  1. 1 can cream of chicken soup (reduced fat is fine)
  2. 4 – 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I used 4 the last time and for our family of 5 that wasn't nearly enough – will definitely add in 6 next time!)
  3. 1 1/4 cup water
  4. 1/4 cup margarine, melted (I'm betting you could use just a tablespoon if you'd like to reduce the calories)
  5. 6 oz. package dressing


  1. Place chicken breast in the bottom of the crockpot (frozen chicken breast is fine also, you may just want to add a little extra cooking time but I think it makes the meat more tender)
  2. Pour soup on top of the chicken breast.
  3. Mix together melted margarine and water.  Stir in dressing.
  4. Pour dressing mixture over the chicken and soup.
  5. Cook on low for four hours in the crockpot.
  6. Serve.

  1. I saw your recipe, and jumped up and put the hamburger back in the freezer and made this instead. Woohoo!!! Can’t wait to see how it turns out….delicious! Thanks.

  2. Am I reading this correctly? You add the dry dressing from the box to the butter and water. Just checking.

  3. Geoff Chevy says

    Hi im curious, would it be wise to add more water to cook at consistent pace?

  4. How long if using frozen chicken?

  5. I made this at our camper this weekend. Loved it. Maybe wouldn’t add as much water to the stuffing mix next time – but the flavor was so good. My husband even suggested adding corn to the mix. Keep the great recipes coming!

  6. Can you replace the chicken with turkey tenderloin

  7. Do you have a print option? I couldn’t find one.
    Thank you
