Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing {{Recipe}}

I was so fortunate for the past four weeks I've had the luxury of having someone at home to help with Marcus, Julia, and the on-goings of every day life - including planning, prepping, and making dinner. This week it's back to flying solo.

Before life with two little ones I tried to make most of our dinners from scratch. I like making homemade cream of chicken soup, or homemade rolls and biscuits. Now? Now I'm just trying to survive till 5:00, and somehow manage to throw something edible together and call it dinner.

To keep from losing my marbles come dinner time I have several freezer meals ready to go. I have also been searching for slow cooker meals, and was introduced to this lovely dish thanks to my mom.

This one has all the flavors perfect for this time of year (hi, Fall!), and is so easy it can be whipped up with a 3-year old hanging off one leg and an infant being worn in a baby wrap. It also received the thumbs up from the husband, so it's quickly earned itself a spot in our meal rotation.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing
What you'll need:
4 large boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup chicken broth
1 can cream of mushroom soup (cream of celery also works well)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup of milk
4 slices cheese (I've found cheddar works best)
1 box stuffing mix

How it comes together:
In slow cooker place chicken breast along the bottom in a single layer.
Add chicken broth and then top each chicken breast with one slice of cheese.
In a small bowl, whisk together cream soups and milk.
Pour soups atop chicken and cheese.
Top with box of stuffing mix.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or high for 4 hours, or until chicken is completely done.
Serve with side of choice.
Enjoy!

So, until I can figure out time management with two, it's crock pots and easy dishes for the win.

  3. This sounds delicious!!! I need to utilize my slow cooker more. I swear we had that thing for years before we even used it last year lol. Oops. I'm determined to make some of these yummy, warm meals during the winter (please let there be winter) so I'm totally bookmarking this for later! (Heck even if its 90 in December - please no, just no), I'll pretend it's winter and make this! :)

  10. I'm going to give this a shot! Tuesdays are busy for us with MOPS and then when we start school, I'll be even busier so this would be something I can toss in the AM and go! Thanks for the suggestion.
