Thanksgiving's on its way!! I have always had the most difficult time making dressing (southern for "stuffing".) Once we threw it out to the birds and they flew away...so when I found this recipe for Crock Pot Chicken and Dressing, I thought, "Why not?" I am SO glad I tried it...it's not the usual throw everything into the slow cooker and walk away. The prep time is longer, but it's worth it...this is THE BEST DRESSING ever! I found this recipe here: http://www.mommyskitchen.net/2012/10/crock-pot-chicken-dressing-happy.html
I must say, her blog on this was much prettier than mine! I am still getting used to Windows 8 and a new laptop. Either way, you will enjoy this recipe. I promise.
Read recipe all the way through before attempting. Here are the ingredients and instructions.
Bake 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts for about 40-45 minutes
@ 375 degrees.
(The recipe called for 5 but my family doesn't like that
Reserve broth from baked chicken.
|Chop 2 stalks celery and 1 small onion|
(This is to be added to cornbread mixture below)
|1-2 t. sage, 1 t. salt, 1-2 t. poultry seasoning, |
and 1 t. pepper.
Add to cornbread mixture below.
|Make two cornbreads from 2 packages of mix or use your own recipe.|
I used corn BREAD mix...NOT muffin mix!
(Muffin mix is sweet.)
Toast a hamburger bun or two pieces of bread.
|Crumble and combine cornbread and 1 toasted hamburger bun|
or 2 pieces of toasted bread.
|Boil two eggs, peel and chop. Add to cornbread mix.|
|At this point, add one can of Cream of Chicken soup,|
two cans of chicken broth and any chicken broth from the cooked
chicken breasts to the cornbread/bread mixture.
I used my Kitchenaid mixer to gently combine the mixture.
|Melt one stick of butter.|
|Shred chicken breasts and get ready to add to cornbread mixture.|
Add shredded chicken and melted butter to cornbread mixture.
|Tip: I shred my chicken while it's warm with the mixer.|
Add shredded chicken (after the butter) to the cornbread
|Tip: Melt butter in small bowl in microwave.|
|Tip: I have discovered Reynolds Slow Cooker liners!!|
Greatest invention EVER! Add liner to Crock Pot.
|Tip: I keep a colander in the sink and put all egg shells,|
cans, paper, etc. in it. At the end of the process,
I just toss everything into the trash can.
