Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing

Paula 170

"Holidays are so much easier since I started making this slow cooker chicken and dressing. Making the dressing in the slow cooker frees up the ovens for other dishes on holidays. Sometimes I add the chicken; sometimes I don't. I often assemble it weeks in advance and freeze it; then I let it thaw in the refrigerator before putting it in the slow cooker."

  • Cook's Note:
  • I do not layer. I just mix it all together and put into the slow cooker. If using Jiffy(R) cornbread mix, make 2 packages.

I submitted this recipe and think the cornbread is very important. If I use Jiffy, I make 2 packages of it. If I make my cornbread from scratch, I mix together 2 c. self-rising cornmeal, 1/4 cup oil, 1 1/4 cups milk, and 1 egg. I then bake the cornbread in a black skillet at 450 degrees until it is browned. Also, when I put this recipe together, I just stir everything together rather than layer it.


Very good! Next time, I will reduce the onion to a cup. For more of a main dish, double the chicken. Would also be delicious with turkey. Looking forward to making it again.


Didn't like this, we would not like this even as a side dish. Granddaughter who eats everything didn't even like this and it should have been perfect for her. Used the Jiffy corn bread mix as suggested for he corn bread as well. NOT for us.
