Easy Slow Cooker Chicken & Dressing Recipe
This recipe is an oldie but a goodie – and gets a hearty dinner on the table in no time!
This is one of those meals we hardly ever have at our house, but it's my husband's favorite so I do occasionally make it up.
Using my slow cooker once a week is oh-so-worth it so I decided to make this in the crockpot and it turned out great! 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!
I found this recipe years ago in a ladies church cookbook, so you know it's gotta be good. It's one of those yummy warm meals to enjoy as it's cooling down, and when I made it last night my kids begged for more (that doesn't happen often around here!)
If you love using your slow cooker – check out our Slow Cooker Menu Plan – full of recipes AND grocery lists!
- cream of chicken soup (or make your own homemade cream soup!)
- boneless skinless chicken breast
- butter or margarine
- stuffing/dressing mix (stovetop style)
If you have cooked chicken that you've already shredded, this recipe is easy, and even if you don't you'll just have to cook your chicken and dump the ingredients in your casserole dish (well, there is an order to it, but it really is just dumping!)
How to make Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
I LOVE how easy this recipe is – and how simple it is to customize for your family!
Add your chicken breast into the bottom of the crockpot and pour the cream of soup on top of the chicken breast. In a bowl, mix together melted butter and water and add in dressing mix. Pour over top of the chicken and cook on low for 4 hours. That's it!
You could customize this recipe by adding in vegetables to make it more of a deconstructed pot pie. If you do add veggies, I would place them UNDER the chicken breasts.
It's also super economical – a box of stuffing will only cost you around $1 and you can even get Perdue Chicken Breast delivered to your door (note this price has increased quite a bit since we originally posted). You can even make your OWN Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup from scratch – wow!
Slow Cooker Chicken & Dressing
- slow cooker
- 1 can cream of chicken soup (reduced fat is fine)
- 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!)
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
- 6 oz box dry stuffing/dressing mix (Stovetop style)
- Place chicken breast in the bottom of the crockpot (frozen chicken breast works fine too, just add a little extra cooking time).
- Pour soup on top of the chicken breast.
- In a bowl, mix together melted butter & water and add in dressing mix.
- Pour Dressing mixture over the chicken and cream soup.
- Cook on low for 4 hours
TIP: Reader Debbie asked if you could add small red potatoes cut in half under the chicken. I think that would be a scrumptious addition and help stretch it to feed bigger eaters or more kids.
Need a new slow cooker?
If you plan on making oodles of Crockpot Recipes with me – or just on your own time! – you might be looking to start with a new slow cooker.
If you're looking for a new Mrs. Potts (like I was this week) here are a few of my favorites . . .
This All-Clad 7-Qt Slow Cooker is my favorite – it was a gift from my whole team last year and I love it even though it's SO much more than I would normally spend!
But honestly I have owned DOZENS of slow cookers over the years and between me and my team – these are our BEST recommendations:
Best Basic Slow Cooker
The go-to housewarming gift 🙂
This Hamilton Beach 6 Quart Slow Cooker is a great beginner slow cooker – it has good 6 Quart Capacity, and while it's simple – it is a trusted name in slow cooking.
Best Small Slow Cooker
Empty nesting or just starting a family? This is the one for you!
If you're looking for a small slow cooker to make recipes for 2-4 people, you can't go wrong with the Crock-Pot Round Slowcooker 4.5 Qt Manual Slow Cooker. It's under $20 at Target right now!
Best Large Slow Cooker
If you love to host gatherings at your house – or just have a brood of your own – you'll want the 8 Quart size.
This spacious 8-Quart Crockpot is perfect for cooking for a crowd –although this Beautiful 8 Qt Slow Cooker at Walmart is so pretty AND has a spoonrest!
Best Programmable Slow Cooker
Set it and forget it – when you can't be in the home all day to start and stop the slow cooker exactly when you need to – a programmable feature is your best friend!
The Crock-Pot 6-Q Programmable Cook & Carry Slow Cooker is the one I use most days (Except mine's an older model) and I LOVE it! It's got the same portable features as the Cook & Carry (below) – but it's also PROGRAMMABLE. I love the extra feature of being able to program it to change over to low heat after a couple hours. I feel like it's the most well rounded crockpot!
Best Portable Slow Cooker
Take that chili on the road! (WITHOUT having a floorboard full of chili by the time you arrive)….
The Crock-Pot 6 Qt Cook & Carry Slow Cooker is really practical & big enough for almost any potluck recipe you can imagine. (The new design is beautiful too!) Take it on the road without worrying about spills. I have owned and loved this crock pot and so has PPP Team Member Jamie!
Slow Cooker That Sautes (and bakes!)
Ninja Possible Pan – The Ninja 4-in-1 of olden days was the one just about everyone on our team used to death. This beauty is the newest model! The nonstick insert lets you saute vegetables, sear meats, and avoid using the stove at all in advance of turning on the slow cooker part of the meal. Boil in it or even remove the insert and pop it in the oven to put it under the broiler for the last 10 minutes! And the spoonrest? The icing on the cake.
Our whole team is curiously eyeing this beautiful gal – let us know if you've tried it!
