The slow cooker is perfect for meals like that!

All you do is put ingredients in your crockpot in the morning, and then when you come home, dinner awaits.

5 ingredient slow cooker chicken stuffing and green beans recipe, easy chicken crockpot dinner recipeThis recipe was actually inspired by Phyllis Good’s new cookbook called Stock the Crock, I noticed this recipe only had 5 ingredients (chicken breast, stuffing, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and green beans – water, salt, and pepper are not included, because like I say in my five-ingredient Friday series, chances are you have those in your kitchen!)

Phyllis is the creator the bestselling Fix-It and Forget-It series, and Stock the Crock is her latest cookbook. It is a compilation of recipes from others which are her favorites. This recipe from Michelle G. was certainly a keeper.

I pride myself in photographing and showing you how dishes will look. I totally cringe when I see people sharing slow cooker recipes with crisp, brightly colored vegetables (like broccoli or green beans) that when actually cooked in a slow cooker, turn a dull color. That is just the reality of cooking in a slow cooker! I know that my readers appreciate me “keeping it real” so I just wanted to share that with you.

    Ooh this meal sounds so nice and cozy. And I LOVE that you show meals exactly how they come out. It’s so annoying when you follow a recipe and then are left wondering why the author’s looks so amazing compared to yours. Always keep it real!

    • Sweetphi

      Thank you so much for comment! I really appreciate you saying that you like how I show meals how they come out. I too find it so frustrating when I’m looking at my meal and looking at a picture, and the two just look so different…I’m like ummmm what did I do wrong? Anyway, thank you for saying that!

  • Darcy

    Yum! So I’m probably in the minority, but I LOVE green bean casserole and this is like a crockpot version of that made with chicken! Thanks for sharing – and “Amen” to keeping it real. 🙂

    • Sweetphi

      I’m totally part of the minority with you Darcy, I LOVE green bean casserole as well. And this totally is like a crockpot version, but in meal form, I never thought about it like that, but now i’m going to! And thank you for your comment about me keeping it real, I appreciate that awesome readers like yourself appreciate the reality of cooking 🙂

  • Stephanie Johnson

    That looks so yummy and EASY! Thanks for sharing!

    • Sweetphi

      You’re so welcome, I think you’ll love it!

    I can’t wait to try this. I’ll need to look for lower-sodium stuffing and soup for my husband, but these days I’m sure I can find them. This’ll be just the ticket for busy worknights this winter. Thanks!

    • Sweetphi

      Thank you so much for your comment! I definitely know that I’ve seen lower sodium soup and stuffing at the store, and know this recipe would be amazing with those ingredients as well 🙂

  • Ana

    Would this recipe work in an oven? And if so, what temp and for how long? Thanks!

    • Sweetphi

      Hi Ana,
      So embarrassing for me – apologies to you (you must think I’ve totally lost my mind) – last night all the responses were going to the wrong comments. Anyway, let me answer your question about if this chicken and stuffing recipe would work in the oven. Yes, this recipe would work in an oven. I would do it in a baking dish, 350 for half an hour to an hour. I would check the chicken for doneness at half an hour and then add 15 minutes if it’s not done and check it again, it should definitely be done cooking within an hour.

    I did the 4 hour cook and found it a little dry bit I have a new slow cooker which seems to cook hotter than my old one. Still delicious! Will make some adjustments next time and I’m sure will be fine. Oh, I also added some fresh sliced mushrooms on to of chicken which worked out well. Except then it’s 6 ingredients !

    • Sweetphi

      Oh love the idea of sliced mushrooms in there!Sometimes brand new slow cookers cook things much faster – mine must be on the old side (or I just use it ALL the time lol). Thanks for commenting!

    What do you do if you don’t like sour cream and don’t have any green beans ??
