1This is one of the BEST recipes for dressing I have made.
It cooks in the crock pot. Moist and it is a meal in itself. My Lady has to make another batch the next day as our family loves this dressing! She uses some of the left over SMOKED turkey from Thanksgiving dinner, along with cooked chicken..
You will need to boil 4 chicken breasts in 2 cups water and 2 cans of broth . Cool and cut into cubes reserving broth. You will need about 3 1/2 cups of this tasty liquid.
Cook a batch of cornbread and cool and crumble. You will also need a box of man made stuffing of the bread crumb variety, or 8 slices of day old bread dried and crumbled. My clever claws make short work of that!
1 stick of butter
1 cup each chopped onions and celery or more to your taste
1 can mushroom soup 1 can chicken soup each
1 or 2 eggs ( My Lady uses 1 large )
1 tsp. poultry season
2 tsp sage or more to your taste.
1 tsp thyme (a delightful herb)
1/2 tsp pepper
Melt butter in skillet and saute your onions and celery till done. Then in a large bowl mix all of the above, REMEMBER ADD Chicken LAST and toss well, do not squish it flat please, if you humans only had our clever little paws, and pack lightly, no squishing, think clever paws here, into a crock pot you have greased all sides of. You may add more broth if it appears a bit dry. You will dot the top of this with a few paws, for humans, pats of butter. Cook on low 5 to 6 hours. The wonderful aroma as it cooks will have you drooling, so keep a towel handy.
