Crock Pot Chicken Stuffing Dinner

So this is so super easy, and it's nice because you can use canned food for everything.  If you haven't been to the store in a while, like I haven't, this is great, because you can just throw everything in a pot.  You can use fresh chicken, or canned like I did this time.  It's a little better with fresh chicken, obviously, but again, this works and my family really likes it. 

1 box stuffing mix
3 T butter, cut up
1 2/3 c warm water
1 lb chicken, fresh or canned (rinsed if canned)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/3 c evaporated milk
1/2 c french fried onions
1 can green beans, rinsed

Mix together the chicken, soup, milk, onions, and green beans.  Pour the stuffing mix over the top, then pour water and place butter on top.  Cook on low for about 2-3 hours if using canned chicken, 3-5 hours if fresh chicken.

Owen, Aaron and I gave this an 8, and Noah gave it a 7.  As I said, we like this better when it uses fresh chicken, we all gave this a 9 with fresh.  Season more if you wish.  The calories are about 370 for 6 servings.  Anyway, this kind of meal is so simple and easy, and I'm always up for something that makes it easy for me ;).


  1. Is it as good as putting in the oven? I've made it that way and just baked it.

    1. It's just as good, but easier because you don't have to monitor it, and you can make it ahead of time if you want.
