Creamy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
Cooler temperatures have us craving warm, creamy comfort food. I wanted to be able to have something that would fit that bill, not take all day to cook and was still jam packed with flavor. This recipe fits that bill and was a lot of fun to come up with.
Creamy Crock-Pot Chicken and Stuffing came to be by looking at what I had left over in the fridge as well as what I had in the pantry.
As I explained yesterday, I always have chicken on hand either cooked and shredded in the freezer or in this case, left over from our Really Easy Oven Roast Chicken recipe. That combined with some canned soup, shredded cheese, sour cream, a box of stuffing mix and some frozen broccoli along with my handy Crock-Pot and I had exactly what I was looking for.
I don’t know about you, but my Crock-Pot is my life saver and most used small appliance in my kitchen. Here is the one that I use Crock-Pot Cook Travel Serve 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker . I have had many slow cookers (truth be told, I still have several) but this is the one that does everything I need and always my “go to”. The other magical thing that I have started using are Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners . These little babies are a life saver in the kitchen when it comes to clean up!!!
Once you have your Crock-Pot set up with the liner just grab a big bowl and mix the canned soup, sour cream, cheese and some salt and pepper.
Throw in your cooked, chunked chicken and frozen broccoli and mix together.
Add this mixture to the Crock-Pot, smoothing out the top.
Take your box of stuffing mix, add 3/4 cup of water and mix together until water is absorbed. Feel free to use the same bowl you mixed the chicken mixture in, I do. (No need to dirty another dish). After the water is absorbed, layer this on top of the mixture in the cooker.
Pop the top on and let this go for about 6 hours on low. When it is done the stuffing will be browned. I will warn you, when you walk in from work and smell this, your tummies will start growling.
Since Tom and I are trying to get more vegetables into our diet, we paired this with the remaining squash and green beans from the night before. I have to tell you, this absolutely hit the spot with what I was looking for. Warm, creamy and hearty!
I hope y’all will enjoy this as much as we did! Make it a great day!
