The Skinny on Easy Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
To make this dish a little more Weight Watchers friendly, I skipped the 1/4 cup of butter called for. (The crock pot is a moist form of cooking that requires a lot less fat.) And I decreased the water a bit to prevent the stuffing from being too soggy.
This dish only needs about 2-1/2 hours of cooking time on HIGH or 4 hours on LOW, perfect when you want the convenience of a crock pot meal in just a few hours. Served with asparagus and cranberry sauce, this easy crock pot chicken and stuffing made for a comforting easy and delicious family friendly weeknight supper.
This recipe can easily be divided in half to make just two servings. Use 2 chicken breasts, 1/2 box of stuffing mix and 1 cup of corn.
