Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
1(10.5) ounce can of cream of chicken soup (or use cream of mushroom soup, it’s less salty)
8 oz. sour cream
1 (6 oz.) box stuffing mix* (Stove Top & Pepperidge Farm are a few of my favs)
¾ cup water
1 (16 oz.) bag frozen green beans
3-4 large chicken breasts, salted and peppered if desired.
Place the chicken on the bottom of the crock pot.
Mix together the soup, sour cream, stuffing, half of the water, and place over the chicken.
Place the string beans either on one side of the crock pot or over the stuffing. You'll want to mix the stuffing periodically if possible- I don't mind mixing the string beans in with the stuffing but if you'd prefer that they remain separate, place the string beans more to the side.
Add the remaining water during the cooking process as needed. I always use all of the water but crock pots cook slightly differently, so adding as needed is safer. If you're leaving for the day, add the remaining water when you return if you feel you need it.
Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 6-7
*No need to cook the stuffing mix prior to adding to crock pot
I like to try to mix the stuffing periodically if I can, just to keep it blended and to mix the moisture around. If the stuffing seems too moist for your liking, leave the lid off the crock pot for the last 30-40 minutes of cooking, or until your desired consistency is achieved.
I love adding diced sausage, onions, and celery to my stuffing- even dried cranberries are delicious! You can also add onion tops toward the end of the cooking process- (YUM.)
This meal is delicious with some whipped potatoes prepared on the stovetop!
