Tips and Tricks To Make This Recipe

🦃 Make A Thanksgiving Version

Use this simple recipe to make an easy paired-down Thanksgiving dinner. Slice a large turkey breast into four pieces instead of chicken breast. When done cooking, top with a few dollops of cranberry sauce and a sprinkle of dried cranberries.

Substitutions and Variations

This crockpot chicken and stuffing recipe is very flexible. You can tweak it to your family’s liking. 

  • Chicken: You can also use boneless skinless chicken thigh meat, boneless turkey breast, or thighs)
  • Soup:  This recipe would be really tasty if you used a different cream soup. Try a can of cream of mushroom soup, cream of bacon, or cream of celery.
  • Stuffing: In a pinch, if you do not have stuffing, use crumbled croutons. You could also take day-old bread and make it into croutons.  Also, you could use dried bread crumbs or panko as a topping.
