Chicken and Stuffing


Simple Chicken and Stuffing for a Delicious Feast

Even on a warm summer evening, sometimes a good homestyle meal is what you need to bring everything to the table.  But who wants to cook things for hours in the oven on a warm day?  Chicken and Stuffing takes only 45 minutes and is as homestyle as you can get.  WIth the use of a easy cheat (Stove Top Stuffing), this meal is ready faster than it’s completely from scratch counterpart, and has flavor to spare.  I added a few other flavorful ingredients to make Chicken and Stuffing more like what Grandma used to make, and I had a dish that was gone in minutes.

Making Chicken and Stuffing in Minutes

I started off my Chicken and Stuffing by sauteing celery, carrots, onions, garlic, and mushrooms until perfectly tender.  My grandmother always added these wonderful vegetables to her stuffings for flavor and moisture, and her stuffing was delicious every time.  I then added the water and butter required for the Stove Top Stuffing.  Since I was making the dish in a cast iron skillet, I added the chicken, sliced thin, to the top of the stuffing, making Chicken and Stuffing a simple one pan dish.  A quick bake in the oven, covered to seal in the juices, and dinner was ready.

Simple One Pan Chicken and Stuffing


  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 6 oz mushrooms, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T butter
  • ¼ C butter
  • 1 ½ C water
  • 1 pkg Stove Top Stuffing, chicken flavor
  • 2 chicken breasts, filleted


  1. In a saute pan, melt the 2 tablespoons butter. Add the celery, carrots, onion, mushrooms, and garlic. Saute over medium heat until tender.
  2. Add the ¼ C butter and water. Mix in the stuffing mix.
  3. If using a cast iron saute pan, place the chicken over the stuffing. If using a casserole dish or slow cooker, spray with nonstick cooking spray and transfer the stuffing, then top with the chicken.
  4. Cover and bake in a 400°F oven for 30-40 minutes, until chicken is tender and no longer pink in the thickest part. (Or cover and set to high for 3 hours or low for 6-8 hours)
  5. Serve hot.

Making Chicken and Stuffing in the Slow Cooker

Are you looking for an even simpler way to make Chicken and Stuffing?  Instead of leaving it in the pan and baking it, place it in your favorite slow cooker for Chicken and Stuffing when you are ready for it.  You can cook it on high if you are running out of time, or low if you want it to be ready when you come home from work.  Chicken and Stuffing is one of my favorite dishes to make in the slow cooker.

  3. This dish looks easy and affordable. I like to use my slow cooker or the grill in the summer. It helps with the heat and the electricity.

  5. This looks wonderful and easy.
    Although I often like to make things without a mix, stuffing mix is one of my big exceptions. My other is blueberry muffin mix.
    I’m pinning this and putting mushrooms on my grocery list.
