Chicken casserole is a favorite comfort food for many, but it isn’t necessarily considered an easy weeknight dinner. That’s why I took a family favorite and figured out how to make it in a slow cooker. Now, one of our favorites can easily be served even on the busiest days of the week!
How to Make Crock Pot Chicken Casserole with Stuffing
This is another one of those recipes that couldn’t be easier to pull together as long as you have some boneless skinless chicken breasts, a crock pot, and a few other simple ingredients.
Making chicken casserole in the slow cooker requires only a few simple ingredients that you may already have on hand.
What size slow cooker should I use?
To make a chicken casserole with stuffing mix, you will need at least a seven quart slow cooker. If you use a smaller crock pot then, be sure to cut your recipe. This recipe is designed to yield eight servings. Be sure to choose the best slow cooker size for your family.
Can I put raw chicken in a crock pot?
You can absolutely put raw chicken straight into a crock pot or slow cooker. Depending on the recipe you are making, you will cover the chicken with different ingredients for cooking. For basic cooking of raw chicken in a crockpot, see how to cook chicken in a crock pot.
What kind of chicken should use for chicken casserole?
For this recipe you will cover the bottom of your slow cooker raw with boneless skinless chicken breasts. If you have some other chicken that is not bone-in, you could use that chicken as well. I have used dark meat for chicken casserole before and it does keep everything moist. However, the chicken breasts are usually easy to find, thaw and cook.
What do I cover the raw chicken with?
After placing your raw chicken in the bottom of your crock pot, mix together the condensed soup and water and spread evenly over the chicken breasts.
Next, sprinkle an entire bag of stuffing mix over the chicken and soup mixture. This could make the recipe quite dry without butter. Finally, melt two sticks of butter and pour evenly over the stuffing mix.
What kind of stuffing mix should I use?
There is no one specific brand of stuffing mix that seems to work better than another, but I usually use this herb stuffing mix from Pepperidge Farms. Based on your own taste preferences, you might choose a different flavor stuffing mix than the herb.
Put the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for six hours then serve.
