Stuffing Chicken

Stuffing Chicken
 This is a recipe I make at least once a month. The kids really enjoy it….and my husband adores it. So, it gets put on the menu a lot. It’s great to make this time of year, as Stove Top Stuffing is usually on sale. I like to purchase a whole slew of boxes and keep them in my food storage. This can be made in the crock pot, or in the oven which ever you prefer! It serves my family of 7 just fine.

Stuffing Chicken

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 4-6 servings


4 chicken breasts, pounded out flat
8 slices Swiss cheese (or about 3/4 C shredded cheese) 
1 can cream of mushroom soup (I use the 98% fat free)
1 c milk
1 Stove Top Stuffing box (usually chicken flavored)
1/4 C butter melted (I always make it with out the butter...trying to shave a bit of fat off the menu)


1. Spray the inside of your crock pot (or casserole dish, if baking in the oven)
2. Lay the chicken out flat in the bottom of the dish.
3. Cover with the cheese.
4. Mix the soup and the milk together and pour over the top of the cheese.
5. Dump the box of stuffing over the top, and drizzle butter over it. (I usually spray it with some cooking spray instead)
6. For the Crock Pot cook on high for 4 hours. The last 1/2 an hour turn the lid sideways, so that some of the stream can escape. You don't want your stuffing to be too soggy.
7. For the Oven, cover and bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Take the foil off and bake 7-10 minutes more.

    We had this for dinner tonight and absolutely loved it!! With my busy schedule, I love dinners with less than 10 ingredients and less than 10 minutes prep time. THIS WAS PERFECT!!!! I posted a link:

    This is probably a silly question, but do I just dump the stuffing and seasonings on top of the liquid dry? If so, does the stuffing cook okay with only the spray on top?
    Thank you

    Yes, ladies. Just dump the stuffing and seasonings on top of the casserole. It will cook just fine. Good luck! Hope you enjoy it.

    Jamie what can I say but…wow…made this last night and my family loved it! They said I will have to make this again. I didn’t have the Swiss cheese so I used mozzarella (next time will get the Swiss to try). Turned out great! The chicken was moist and tender and the stuffing was a perfect. This was so easy to make after a long day at work. Thank you…all of your recipes are wonderful. I love knowing that I don’t have to worry when I pick a recipe from you to fix. I just know it will be good and that’s a wonderful feeling. Saves my time and my pocket book! Thank you again.

    Hi Jamie,

    I was wondering what salad that you made with this dish? Can’t find it on your site. Thanks

    Hi jamie. I plan of making this and was getting my grocery list together. In the picture it looks like there are mushrooms, but they are not listed with ingredients. Do you sauté them or add them raw? Thanks!

      I do (sometimes) add mushrooms to this recipe. Just layer them over the chicken, and before you add the cheese. I usually use canned. Good luck!
