I like serving ours over rice or pasta. Both work really well with the chicken and sauce. I usually serve it with a side of roasted broccoli or a salad.


Don’t overcook the chicken. A lot of crockpot recipes call for cooking chicken 8+ hours which is normally far too long. You’ll end up with dry chicken. Four to six hours is usually plenty of time.

What kind of ranch mix should I use?

I use either Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix or the store brand from my local HEB.

How long does it take to cook chicken in the crockpot?

Boneless, skinless chicken breast only needs 4-6 hours on low.

What’s the best way to shred chicken?

You can use a mixer, two forks, or even your hands.

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts – You can substitute these with boneless skinless chicken thighs. You’ll need to reduce the cook time if you do this.
  • Ranch dressing mix – I do not recommend substituting this.
  • Chicken stock – You can replace this with chicken broth or even vegetable stock.
  • Cream of chicken – You can use various versions of cream of chicken or make your own homemade.

You could also add cheddar cheese or bacon to this to add extra flavor.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • If you prefer to not use sour cream you can substitute it for plain Greek yogurt. 
  • To ensure your chicken and stuffing does not stick to the crockpot you might want to lightly spray your crockpot prior to adding your ingredients. 
  • If you prefer a crispier stuffing, remove the lid for the last 30 minutes of baking, this removes some of the condensation in the crockpot.

You will want to store your leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. 

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 crispy it up. Just be sure to keep an eye on it as it cooks.

One of the most popular posts on this blog continues to be a recipe for Chicken and Stuffing Casserole that I shared back in 2013! I received the recipe on an index card at my bridal shower from one of my mother-in-law’s friends, and it’s very similar to a dish that my mom made regularly when I was growing up. I’m happy to report that it’s now one of my kids’ favorite dinners, too!

While the original is still a keeper, sometimes we just need a dump-and-go slow cooker chicken recipe that doesn’t require our attention…at all. The kind of meal where you can toss the ingredients into a pot, set the timer, and then forget about it for the rest of the day. When you don’t want to dwell on dinner, stress about what to serve, or spend hours slaving over a hot stove, set-it-and-forget-it is definitely the way to go!

This is a quick overview of the ingredients that you’ll need for this easy chicken and dressing dinner. As always, the exact measurements and the specific instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.

  • Carrots: a great vegetable for the slow cooker because they stand up well to the long cooking time and don’t get too mushy.
  • Broccoli: use a bag of frozen florets for ease, or substitute with fresh broccoli. The broccoli does get quite soft over the longer cooking time, so omit this ingredient if you don’t care for super-tender broccoli.
  • Chicken Thighs or Chicken Breasts: either the white meat or the dark meat will work; however, I find that chicken thighs hold up better and stay more moist during the low-and-slow cooking process.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup and Cream of Chicken Soup: these form the “gravy” or creamy base for the chicken mixture. You can use any flavors of condensed soup that you prefer.
  • Water: just a small amount to thin the sauce slightly. The sauce will also get thinner as it cooks, thanks to the condensation from the pot and the cooking liquids from the vegetables and chicken.
  • Dry Stuffing Mix: I like Pepperidge Farm Herb-Seasoned Stuffing Mix, but you can substitute with any similar brand. Stove Top Stuffing will also work well here — just make sure that you use the same amount.
  • Melted Butter: adds flavor and moisture to the stuffing mix, without making it too soggy since the stuffing will also absorb some liquid while it’s in the slow cooker.


I adapted our original Chicken and Stuffing Casserole recipe to make use of the Crock Pot, and added some veggies so that it would be a complete dinner — no sides necessary! This Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing Casserole is comfort food at its finest, and an easy weeknight dinner that every home cook should have in her repertoire.

  1. Place vegetables in the bottom of a slow cooker.
  2. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then arrange the meat on top of the vegetables.
  3. Whisk together condensed soups and water. Pour the sauce over the chicken.
  4. Sprinkle the dry stuffing mix on top of the chicken, then drizzle with melted butter.
  5. Cover the Crock Pot and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.
