Crock Pot Chicken & Cornbread Dressing

In this post I’m sharing how to make super simple Crock Pot Chicken and Cornbread Dressing.

Y’all, I can’t believe how fast this year is flying by! Here we are just a couple of days away from Halloween and before you know it we’ll be having Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner.

I can vividly remember my grandparents saying “Just wait and see, time will fly by faster and faster“. They were quite right. 

This super easy Crockpot chicken and dressing is not entirely about the holidays because it is simple enough for weeknight meals too. It is a great option though for stress free holiday cooking or small gatherings. 

To make things even easier, I used a rotisserie chicken that I picked up at the store. 

I did bake my own cornbread but you could use a mix if you prefer. Just be sure NOT to use a sweet cornbread mix if you go that route because it will not be good.

Will dressing stay moist in a Crockpot? The dressing will stay nice and moist while the outer edges will brown and get slightly crispy from the crockery as it cooks.

Can I make crockpot dressing ahead of time? You can prep and prepare the chicken and dressing mixture and refrigerate overnight then add it to your crockpot to cook the next day. 

Do I have to use chicken with the dressing? No, you could omit the chicken entirely for just a slow cooker dressing or opt for a rotisserie turkey breast from the grocery store to add to the recipe.

The other main ingredient in this recipe is Pepperidge Farm bread stuffing. You could also dry your own bread pieces to include but this helps keep the recipe simple. 

The entire recipe mixture takes just a few minutes to prepare and can be done in less time than it takes the cornbread to bake.

You’ll have a delicious comforting dinner waiting for you in the slow cooker or a stress free holiday meal without the hassle of roasting a turkey
