Today, we have another episode of SAFE Solutions Scratch Cookin’ Sunday!
With Thanksgiving being a little over a week away, I got a little impatient and made a little tide over meal until the big day meal!
Crock-pot Chicken and Stuffing!
What I love about this is, you get the feel of Thanksgiving food but with the ease of using the crock-pot to do all the work!! So it is perfect for any during the week meal, or you can double or triple the recipe and serve it to a holiday crowd!
Here’s the recipe!
Crock-pot Chicken and Stuffing
(Made for a family of 4)
3 large and thawed chicken breasts
2ea – boxes of stuffing mix, I used one chicken flavor and one the plain cornbread stuffing(or make your own, I cheated and took the easy way out)
1 can – Cream of Chicken soup, I used the lower sodium to keep the recipe from tasting too salty
1 can – low sodium chicken broth
(after you empty the can of chicken soup, you will need it filled back up with water)
Place the thawed chicken breasts in the bottom of the crockpot.
Pour chicken broth over the chicken.
In a separate bowl, mix one box of stuffing, can of Cream of Chicken and a can of water until thoroughly combined.
Pour mixture over the top of the chicken.
Cook on low setting for 7 hours or until chicken is cooked thoroughly.
Remove chicken and shred into chunks and mix back into the crockpot.
Add the second box of stuffing and stir all of it together.(This was a step I kind of winged. The recipe I followed called for one box, but at the end of the cook time it was too squishy for my liking, adding the second box gave it a better consistency. So this step depends entirely on your preference of stuffing consistency!)
Allow another 20 minutes to cook the stuffing through.
Serve warm, I recommend with a side of cranberry sauce!
I also steamed some broccoli and carrots to serve as a side. It made for a very filling comfort meal! Everyone in my house went back for more than one serving!
