    I make this but a little different. Cook 3-4 slices of bacon, take out bacon to drain and put in refrigerator. In the pan you used for the bacon brown the chicken breasts in the bacon drippings. Place chicken in slow cooker and top with one small can drained mushrooms and one can of cream of chicken soup. At the end of the cooking time (usually only about 3 hours on low in my cooker) put slices of swiss cheese on top and the crumbled bacon. One of our favorites! Serve over rice with steamed broccoli on the side.

      We buy the frozen chicken breasts. They are medium sized. We have also bought the chicken breast cutlets. Then we add a few more since they are smaller in size. Hope this helps. -The Six Sisters

    Silly question….the Herb stuffing mix…do you use just the seasoning packet or both the packet and the actual dry stuffing?


    • says

      The stuffing mix we used had it combined together. So if your seasoning packet is separate, combine them if your dried bread crumbs look like they have no seasoning on them. Hope this helps.

    This is in the crock for tonight’s dinner..fingers crossed it comes out looking like your picture because it looks yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    This is one of our favorite dishes, but I have never used the crock pot before. I will from now on though. Thanks for the idea.

    I’ve made this many times and always added a few thinly sliced pieces of boiled ham from the deli. Very good.

    I want to make this recipe but my husband doesn’t like swiss cheese can i use cheddar do you think that would work?

    When I was in college, the dining hall served a dish like this that had little slivered almonds in it. It was delicious! I’m going to try this recipe and add almonds!

  8. Sandi S. says

    I made this today and my stuffing is all dried out :( I’m hoping to save it some how! I tried doing the frozen chicken for 8 hours but I guess that won’t work.

  9. Annie H. says

    Tried this tonight. Seriously delicious. My hubby and his friend were in love with it. I added toasted almonds on top of the finished dish and served with green beans, cranberry sauce & mashed potatoes.

    How exactly do you freeze this?? Put it all in freezer bag and then into crock pot, cook first then freeze, and how?? I am new to all this and there seems to be a couple recipes that aren’t spelled out for dummies like me ;)

    I purchase chicken breast in 40lb boxes and the breast are quite large. How many lbs of chicken should I use?


    • Cyd says

      If your breasts are quite big maybe only cook 4 or 5. Our recipe calls for six, which is probably around 3 to 4 pounds.

  12. Carolyn says

    One package herb stuffing mix…not sure which product you are referring to. Something like Stove Top or like the Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix? One is a much larger package than the other.

  13. Jennifer says

    This looks awesome! I need to feed a family of 8, any tips on how to bump this up just enough for 8 without having to double the recipe? Thanks in advance!

    • Cyd says

      Just add a little more of each ingredient to cover the other 2 chicken breasts that you will be adding. It’s ok if you add another can of cream of chicken soup. It will be extra creamy!

    this really looks and sounds good , going to make it this weekend. do you think i can use
    almond or lactose free milk instead of regular dairy milk ?

  15. Stacey Z says

    I’ve been making this easy recipe for family and guest since getting it from a co-worker for the past 20 years!
    When you serve it with a spinach salad and fresh bread, it’ll seem like you’ve slaved in the kitchen all day

  16. shannan says

    I was wondering how much stuffing to use..? The recipe just says a bag.. I am using pepperidge farm and it comes in a 14 oz bag- is this too much? I read the comments and one person commented her stuffing was dry and I am now wondering if the 14 oz may be too much??

  17. Rachael says

    If I was making this for 10 people vs. 6, and need to layer the chicken, should I put stuffing between the chicken layers, or just on top? Or would you recommend me slicing up the chicken first.

  18. tammy says

    Made this last night for my hubby and I for dinner was great will make it again..ty for the great im looking for a recipe for porkchops veggies with a creamy sauce any ideas?

  19. Emily says

    I would love to try this today for dinner but don’t have stuffing on hand. Do you think Panko bread crumbs would brown ok for the topping if I drizzle butter on top. Have never tried in crock pot?

  20. Ava says

    I am making this for tonight. Is it ok to have the chicken in multiple layers before adding the stuff on top? Or have you tried layering chicken, stuff on top, more chicken, more stuff on top?

    • Cyd says

      Is your slow cooker really small? We try to make sure each piece of chicken has swiss cheese on it and the soup and dressing.
