How do you make Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing?

Should you use chicken breast or chicken thighs for Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing?
I would use chicken thighs for this meal, skinless and boneless. Chicken breast has a tendency to dry out rather quickly, although you can use it for this, the best flavor will come from chicken thighs.
Chicken thighs have a juicer flavor and texture, they just shred apart after slow cooking with the other ingredients, making them a great choice for this meal.
How do you make Gluten-Free Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing?
There are two ingredients that will need to be adapted to make this gluten-free. The first one is stuffing. It’s important to use a gluten-free stuffing. We prefer this gluten-free stuffing from Aldi.
During the holiday season, I usually stock up on several boxes of gluten-free stuffing from Aldi to keep throughout the year for meals such as this.
It can also be made with any of your favorite boxed gluten-free stuffings.
The next swap needs to be the gravy. This 5 Minute Gluten-Free Gravy is the BEST one that I have found and it’s so easy to make, I suggest it even if you do not need gluten-free.
It’s much better than the canned or jarred versions.
If you use this gravy recipe, you will use the entire amount of gravy you make to pour over the ingredients in the slow cooker.
Can you make Slow Cooker Chicken and Stuffing in the Ninja Foodi?
It’s easy to use just as you would a slow cooker.
This can also be done using the pressure cooker function, I will be sharing that version as well. This makes a great Ninja Foodi Recipe.
