  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sage
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 2 cups white bread (day old)
  • 8 cups corn bread
  • 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cans chicken broth (from 3 breasts)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 3 chicken breasts
  • Cooking Directions

    Stew chicken breasts until done; cook the onion and celery until tender in the oil. Add salt, sage and poultry seasonings; combine the breads in a large mixing bowl.

    Stir in the cooked onion, celery, salt, sage and poultry seasonings.

    In a small bowl combine the soup, broth, eggs, and vinegar. Combine with other ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Pour into Crock-Pot and cook on high for 30 minutes.

    Turn heat down to low and cook 3-4 hours. About 1 hour before it's done, add the broken pieces of chicken. I believe you will find this to be the easiest and the most complimented dressing you have.

    I love it because on the holidays, I have every eye on my stove covered, the oven baking several things and I stay calm, because my dressing is cooking and has the most wonderful aroma drifting through the house.

    This recipe is a favorite everywhere I have taken it. I believe your viewers will adore it, for its simplicity.
