     CROCK POT DRESSING

   4 Boiled chicken breast
2 Cans of cream of chicken soup
1 Can of water or broth (use broth you boiled chicken)

 

 

 

Frozen Chicken with spices in crock pot to cook overnight.

Mix soup, water or broth together.

Second layer, 1/2 of broken up chicken.

2 Sticks melted butter
1 Tsp sage
2 Eggs beaten
3 Cups crumbled corn bread
1 Cup white bread crumbled
1 Medium onion
Salt & Pepper

Third & Fourth layer, all of dressing and rest of chicken.
Fourth layer is rest of chicken soup and broth.

 

Mix cornbread, white bread, eggs, butter, onion, sage, salt and pepper together. Pour 1/2 of soup mixture in bottom of crock pot. Put 1/2 chicken over that. Add all of the bread mixture. Add rest of chicken, then balance of soup mixture. Bake on low for three hours.

Tip: Start saving your left over cornbread and white bread. Even the ends of your sandwich bread will work just great. Just toss them in a freezer bag until you are ready for them. Then you won’t have to bake the cornbread or any white bread (biscuits) like I did. We didn’t have any bread in the house. I thought this was a great recipe to share for small families not traveling this year or if you need something easy to take to a family gathering. I used split chicken breast instead of boneless… Remember! save your broth to use in your recipe. Also for your Giblet Gravy if you make it.

 

GIBLET GRAVY

1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
2 boiled eggs

Cream of chicken soup and chicken broth.

Heat then add…

3 tbs flour in cup of warm water whisk to mix up, pour into pot and bring to a boil.
Then let simmer until your desired thickness.

Tip: For Thanksgiving, I always make two batches for our family with this recipe. One pot, I actually boil the giblets and chop them up to add with the main ingredients. For the ones in our family that don’t like the giblets I just use this simple recipe that you can use any time of the year. I hope your enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving.
