5 ingredient Crock-pot chicken & Stuffing

I love a recipe that takes about 5 minutes to prepare, cooks in the Crock-pot, and is ready and waiting by dinner time.  then the fact that this recipe only has 5 ingredients is SUPERB, and then the extra awesome thing about this dish is the cooking time-in the crock-pot, READY IN 4 HOURS!

I discovered this recipe on Pinterest (where all good recipes have been coming from the last few months).  The original post can be found at The Pursuit of Happiness Blog, also known as which is cool, because Lisa has an alias.

This is a great recipe for all busy households, and pretty dang economical too.

4 fresh or frozen (thawed) chicken breasts
1 (6 oz.) box of Stove Top Stuffing Mix, unprepared
1/2 c. sour cream
1 (10.75 oz.) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 c. water

In a medium size mixing bowl combine the sour cream, soup and water.  Mix well.
Place the chicken breasts side by side in the bottom of the crock-pot.  Season the chicken breasts with pepper & garlic powder. 
Spread the box of stuffing mix over the chicken breasts, then pour the soup mix over the top.

Cook on LOW for 4 hours*.
*Check your chicken with an instant read thermometer, it should read 165 degrees or higher -the short cooking time is a bit unusual for a main dish meal cooked on low*

That's it! 
One of the added bonuses of this recipe dish is the shorter cooking time.  If you've ever forgotten to prepare and start your crock-pot dish, you will appreciate this recipe. You will still have time to make it when you realize you remember! LOL~
