But the one thing about a potluck that can get interesting is trying to jockey a position for your casserole in the oven.
We’ve had ‘em stacked 2 high on both racks in an oven on a potluck Sunday!
Which is just one more reason to love my crock pot!
But I was feeling like I was in a rut and in need of a new recipe – something different – but easy. Something like Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing.
Hey – I love stuffing. I mean really love it.
I crave it year round.
It was the perfect dish to bring to my friend Cinnamon’s potluck and baby shower.
I had everything prepped the day before so that it assembled quickly in the morning. It cooked through the church service and was hot and ready at noon.
I guess other people really like stuffing too – cause there wasn’t much left! I’m just glad I had Angel Girl snap a picture of it in it’s raw state before we left home!
Poor Jan was looking forward to some in his lunch the next day – but Dagmar and I finished it off that night – it was that good!
Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing
1 cup butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 can mushroom stems and pieces, drained (4 ounces)
3 Tablespoons dried parsley
1-1/2 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
12 cups dried bread cubes
2-1/2 cups chicken broth
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup (10-3/4 ounce)
5-6 cups cooked, chopped chicken
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onions, celery, mushrooms, parsley, sage, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Saute until tender.
Combine the eggs and soup. Stir in the broth. Add the sauteed mixture.
Pour over the bread cubes and mix well.
Put half of the stuffing mix in a greased 5 quart crock pot liner. Cover with half of the chicken. Repeat layers.
Cook on low for 4-1/2 to 5 hours.
Serves about 14-16.
