  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup milk
  • 6 slices deli ham
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package herbed dry bread stuffing mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted


  1. Mix together the cream of chicken soup and milk in a small bowl. Pour enough of the soup into a slow cooker to cover the bottom. Layer chicken breasts over the sauce. Cover with slices of ham and then Swiss cheese. Pour the remaining soup over the layers, stirring a little to distribute between layers. Sprinkle the stuffing on top, and drizzle butter over stuffing. Cover, and cook on low for 4-6 hours, or high for 2-3 hours.

  1. Now that school has started and my cake business is booming & I'm crazy busy, I've decided to start making more slow cooker foods so I can feed my family good healthy meals without much hassle. I am excited to try this recipe. I've had it pinned for quite some time now. Off to throw it in the crock pot and make some sugar roses for a wedding cake!

    Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!
  2. I tried this last night and it came out really well! I was afraid it might be a bit bland, so I stirred some minced garlic and Herbs de Provence into the sauce, which gave it a nice flavor. To those who felt the dish was a bit "soupy" -- I served it with a side of rice pilaf, and drizzled the extra sauce over that, so I was glad for the extra liquid!

    I made this last night and something went wrong. It cooked for about 5 hours and the stuffing was dark brown. The Swiss cheese looked over cooked as well. I didn't havE a lot of extra sauce. Are you supposed to layer sauce between the ham and cheese and before you put the stuffing on. My chicken was thawed. Could that be e problem?
  4. Hi there! I saw this on Pinterest and decided to try it (like many others) - I found mine turned out great (tasted great) but was runny as well. I used partially frozen chicken breasts (they were solid blocks of ice, but still firm frozen) and I used 4 large chicken breasts, which I cut up into smaller, bigger pieces so that they could cook decently. This must be for a large crockpot - I have a middle larger size, and four chicken breasts barely fit. I had to layer the chicken with the ham into two layers (this is with cutting them up, too) and then - after 5 hours (on high) of cooking - the chicken was done, but with the 1 cup milk mixed with the cond. soup - all the water that comes out of the frozen chicken adds to this - making it more soupy?! If I do make this again, I'd recommend cutting the milk in half - especially if you are using frozen chicken breasts - the water from them cooking is going to add to the sauce. Unless you are frying them on high for 6-8 hours in your crockpot all day, then you'll want the extra juices. But I found it was very much like chicken condensed soup with all water that baked out of the partially frozen chicken (not even fully frozen). Also - not sure if anyone's mentioned this - but I didn't see a StoveTop (or any of the stuffing mixes) come in an 8 oz box? The only ones I've seen are 6 oz boxes, not 8 oz? I've seen bags of stuffing that are 12 oz, but no 8 oz, all the boxes are 6 ounces. I was only able to fit half of the stuffing mix on top of my chicken (because of smaller crockpot) but if you do use the whole box like you recommended (even if it's 6 oz) I think it would have helped more with the extra juices! I still think it turned out great - tasted amazing! Thank you for the recipe!

    I just made this for dinner tonight! It turned out AMAZING! It's just the hubby and I so I only used 3 chicken breasts. Left everything else the same though! Was perfect. We had a wonderful dinner and he has plenty for lunch tomorrow! Didn't have dinner planned so I was in a hurry and was super busy. Cooked on high for 2hrs. Chicken was moist and everything delicious!
  6. Love a quick, easy and delicious slow cooker meal! We really enjoyed the richness of the meal and the minimal prep time. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I am sharing on my blog! Thanks! Lauren @ My Slice of Life Blog
  7. Him there, Made this tonight for dinner, however I must say mine does not look appealing. It has a lot of liquid in it still, even though I cooked it for 4 hours and the ham and the cheese has just fallen off the chicken and the cheese has melted. Not sure what I have done wrong. Added corn flour to make it thicker but hasn't made much difference. Although it looks unappealing, it still tastes great.
