First seen in Maggie's Smashed Peas and Carrots blogspot (URL: This is a tasty, easy substitute for a Thanksgiving-like meal without all the fuss. I prepared my own cream of chicken soup and stuffing from scratch rather than using the store-bought versions shown in the recipe. Turkey thighs work well here, too. The wonderful aroma of Thanksgiving will fill the house!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces chicken breasts or 16 ounces turkey thighs
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen vegetables
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup (or homemade equivalent)
  • 16 ounces seasoned stuffing mix, prepared
  • salt and pepper


  1. 1. Pour in the bag of frozen vegetables into the bottom of the crockpot.
  2. 2. Place your chicken breasts or turkey thighs on top of the vegetables.
  3. 3. Pour the cream of chicken soup over the chicken or turkey layer.
  4. 4. Prepare the stuffing according to package directions (or make your own using dried bread cubes, sauteed onion and celery, poultry season, salt, pepper, and chicken broth).
  5. 5. Spoon prepared stuffing on top of everything in the crockpot, being careful not to overfill the pot.
  6. 6. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
  7. Make sure your crockpot is large enough to hold everything including a generous amount of stuffing. The stuffing will shrink somewhat during cooking.
