I’m honestly a fan of making my own dressing or stuffing with Bell’s Seasoning and slightly stale artisan bread, but that type of stuffing isn’t something that I’m up for on the typical week night. Particularly after the holiday season. However, pre-packaged stuffing and dressing can be an awesome addition to your slow cooker when you want some of the flavors of a holiday dinner without all of the work that comes with cooking turkey. This recipe for slow cooker chicken and dressing could be made with turkey, if you really were craving those Thanksgiving flavors. However, it also works as a great, easy slow cooker meal when you are looking for something easy to make for you family.
Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing Ingredients
- 3-4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken breasts, cut into halves or thirds, depending on size.
- 1 Box of Stuffing mix (Stove Top or similar)
- 1 Can Cream of Chicken and Mushroom Soup
- 1 Cup Chicken Broth
- 1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Celery
- 1/2 Cup Coarsely Chopped Sweet Onion
- 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
- 1 tsp Seasoning Salt
- 1 tsp Bell’s Seasoning
This is so easy to make. Start by adding the chicken into your slow cooker. Then pour in the can of soup. Top it with the box of stuffing, chopped celery and onions, and seasonings. Finally, pour in the chicken broth and stir gently. Cut the butter into small patties and place on top of the mixture.
That’s it. A dinner that’s prepped and cooking away in under 15 minutes! This is also one of those meals where I almost always have all of the ingredients on hand.
Cook everything on low in your slow cooker for around 6 hours. An hour or two more won’t hurt anything, but the longer it cooks, the mushier the dressing/stuffing will become.
