This crockpot chicken and stuffing recipe is filled with ingredients that easily make it a complete meal.
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- Chicken breasts – You’ll want boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe.
- Green beans – Fresh, frozen, or canned green beans can be used.
- Chicken stuffing mix – We use StoveTop chicken stuffing mixing. You can use a different brand or a different flavor, if preferred, as long as it’s still a 6 ounce box.
- Cream of chicken soup – A can of this soup, undiluted, is part of the gravy.
- Sour cream – Makes the gravy creamy and slightly tangy.
- Chicken broth – Use low sodium to control the saltiness.
- Butter – For richness and moisture.
- Seasonings – Salt and pepper, garlic powder, and dried Italian seasonings flavor this slow cooker chicken recipe.
Want to make this slow cooker chicken recipe your own? Here are a few ways to switch it up.
- Add in other vegetables. Feel free to add in 1 cup of other vegetables. Either one of these or a combination: diced onion, diced celery, corn, or frozen peas and carrots.
- Use a different soup – Swap out the cream of chicken soup for cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery, if preferred.
- Use chicken thighs. The chicken breasts can be replaced with boneless chicken thighs, as long as the total weight is the same. It doesn’t change the other ingredients or cooking time.
Can I Use Frozen Chicken in the Crockpot?
As a general rule, no and in this recipe, definitely not. If your chicken is frozen, you will need to thaw it completely before beginning this recipe. Frozen chicken doesn’t cook properly in the crockpot and it can actually cause bacteria to grow as it’s not cooked fast enough. Plus it may not cook completely or you’ll dry out the other ingredients while waiting for it to cook. So definitely use fully thawed chicken for this recipe.
How to Make Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing
Talk about super easy slow cooker recipes! This crockpot chicken with stuffing is beyond simple to make. Here’s a summary:
(Scroll below to the printable recipe card for details and measurements.)
- Season the chicken. Add the chicken to the crockpot in a single layer. Whisk together the salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. Sprinkle the mixture on both sides of the chicken.
- Add the other ingredients. Add the green beans and stuffing mix on top of the chicken. Then combine the soup, chicken broth, sour cream, and butter in a separate bowl. Pour over the stuffing. Do not mix.
- Cook. Cook on high for 4 to 5 hours or until an internal temp reaches 165 degrees F. If the mixture seems dry, add a bit more chicken broth.
Tips for Success
If this is your first time making slow cooker chicken and stuffing, here are a few things to help.
- Add an additional chicken breast. If your chicken is on the smaller side, you can add an extra one as long as they all fit in a single layer.
- Make the stuffing crispy. If you like the stuffing to be crispier, remove the lid the last 30 minutes of cooking. Alternatively, you can also put the crock in a 400 degree oven for 10-15 minutes to brown and firm up the stuffing.
- Don’t overcook the chicken. Use an internal thermometer to see when it’s time to shut the slow cooker off. When it reads 165F, your chicken is ready. Don’t overcook it or it may dry out.
What to Serve with Chicken and Stuffing
This dish is truly an all-in-one meal but you can definitely serve it with a side dish or two. Here are a few of my favorite pairings:
How to Store & Reheat Leftovers
- How to store leftovers. Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
- How to reheat leftovers. To reheat you can do this in the microwave. If you want a crispy stuffing you can put it in the oven on broil for a minute or two to crisp it up. Just be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.

Reader Questions and Reviews
Love it. Only a few things I’d change. 1 if doubling stick to 1 sour cream and 1 can of chicken broth. What I’ll be doing is placing everything in the pot (with above in hand) minus the stove top. Cook everything for 2 hours. Add your stove top for the last hours fully cooked
This was awesome. I used frozen veggies, a carrot, broccoli, and cauliflower blend. Cook time in crockpot was just 4 hours butit was set to cook 6. I was checking it and it seemed done and was. This turned out very yummy! Will definitely be making it again
Delicious – and super easy. I lined the bottom of the crockpot with chicken – five breasts. I added frozen beans, carrots and corn. The casserole was a bit wet. I know frozen veggies have more liquid when they thaw. It was still delicious,
Great meal for busy day! Add a quick salad ,some cranberry sauce and everyone is happy! Even the picky eater loves it!
This recipe is so easy and delicious.
I’m going to try this recipe, but instead of Green Beans I may use Onions and Green Peppers.
Wanting to make this but can you convert to instant pot cook time?
Can I freeze the leftovers? How long will they last in the freezer? TIA
I really liked this dish. Easy to make and very satisfying. Would recommend
This was a excellent recipe, it passed my picky eaters inspection. I served the green beans on the side.
Definitely A Do-Over. Great recipe.
My husband and I loved this! Kids even liked it. Will definitely make again. Thanks for all the easy tasty recipes!
Can this be frozen and how long will it last?
It’s so hot outside so I’ve been using the heck out of my air fryer and crockpot. Just made this and LOVED it! So easy and delicious. Kids loved it, too. Winner.
Is it possible to reheat this in the crockpot? My microwave is currently broken. The meal was delicious though!
Hi Sam – I think so? I always reheat in the microwave. Try it. Glad you liked it!
Not a fan of sour cream – could I use another ingredient or maybe a 2nd can of cream I of chicken soup? Or possibly mor chicken broth?
I use 1/4 cup Mayo & 1/4 cup Sour Cream so maybe just Mayo for you!
Great recipe! Will make again.
Really good and so easy. I added some canned (drained) corn.
This recipe was amazing! I served with mashed potatoes. I wasn’t going to add the green beans because I wasn’t sure how I felt about it in the dish but I am glad I did. Super simple and easy to make and delicious!
