Quick & easy crock-pot chicken bake

While it’s generally good to stay away from a lot of processed foods, there are some days where – for whatever reason – you just need a break from the kitchen.

In that case, it becomes a matter of choosing between the lesser of two evils (i.e. a meal with some pre-made components versus fast food).

To that, I say: “Resist the drive-through!”

Yes, there’s definitely a time and a place for In-N-Out, but this recipe is just too simple (and tasty) to pass up on a busy weeknight.

Tastes like 'Thanksgiving on a spoon!'

Quick & Easy Crock-Pot Chicken Bake (serves 4)

Ingredients: 

  • 4 chicken breasts (cubed, if desired)
  • Box of stuffing mix
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. Season chicken and place in the bottom of the crock-pot
  2. Dump entire box of (dry) stuffing over chicken
  3. Mix Greek yogurt and cream of chicken soup in separate bowl
  4. Pour yogurt/soup mixture into crock-pot (do not mix)
  5. Sprinkle cheese on top, if desired
  6. Cook on low for 4 hours, or until chicken is cooked through

Note: I found that there’s plenty of salt in the stuffing mix and soup, so go easy on any extra salt the first time around.
