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)

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. Season chicken with salt, pepper and a little extra sage (...if desired) and lay on top of stuffing mixture.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours. Remove chicken and cut into large chunks. Return to the slow cooker, mixing gently.
  4. 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.
