A warm, soothing, hot meal waiting for you when you have a "Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" and just want to kick back in your bunny slippers and relax. =)
Note: I use an old-school crock pot, the kind where the crock is not removable. ( I think it's a 3.5 qt.) I find they cook more evenly and slowly than the crock pots with the removable crocks. If you're using the removable type, adjust your cooking time to be a little less. Once chicken is cooked through, it's done. No need to cook any more.

How To Make warm & comforting chicken and dressing (crock pot)
Add all ingredients, except chicken and salt and pepper used to season the chicken, to a large mixing bowl and mix gently until well mixed and bread cubes are completely moistened. Lightly oil inside of slow cooker and add mixture.
Season chicken with salt, pepper and a little extra sage (...if desired) and lay on top of stuffing mixture.
Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Remove chicken and cut into large chunks. Return to the slow cooker, mixing gently.
Serve with cranberries, a fresh garden salad and vegetable of your choice for a quick, easy and comforting meal when time is tight. Can be served with gravy, but we like it as is.
