Storage

Fridge

You will want to store your leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to three days. 

To reheat you can do this in the microwave. If you want a crispy stuffing you can put it in the oven on broil for a minute or two to crispy it up. Just be sure to keep an eye on it as it cooks.

  1. I’d also serve with Cranberry Sauce on the side for an extra kick of “Thanksgiving Dinner”.

  2. I was in a hurry and used frozen chicken breasts. I cooked on high for 1 hour then turned down to low. Now waiting to see how it turns out. Was it ok to do it this way?

    1. you can use one box of stuffing instead of two and reduce the amount of chicken that you use. You just want to have enough ingredients to ensure it is able to cook well for the duration.

  3. Hi! Do you mix the stuffing mix and sour cream mix at any point? I made this tonight and it was still very layered at the end. We ended up just shredding the chicken and mixing it all up. Any tips?

    1. This dish is one you want to baby a little bit as it is cooking. I will use a spoon to make sure everything is keeping moist and marrying together as it cooks.

    1. yes, you can use one, the liquid with both seep to the bottom and stay on top. I like to use a spoon to push the contents while they are cooking ensuring enough liquid has reached the bottom. you can also add more chicken broth to the top if your stuffing is looking like it needs a bit more.

  4. In the recipe/instructions it says “1/2 cup of chicken broth + 1/2 cup of chicken broth”. Why doesn’t it jus say 1 cup of chicken broth ?

    1. Sorry I corrected the recipe to better explain. You use 1/2 cup at first and then can add an additional 1/2 cup while your chicken and stuffing is cooking.

  5. I really liked this recipe. I was out of broth, so I just used water. Also, watch your cook time, the chicken can get a little dry if not. I’m new to cooking in a crockpot, so this was an error I made. I will be making this again! Yum.
