Chicken Cornbread Casserole

I love this super easy chicken slow-cooker recipe because it tastes like Thanksgiving, but without all the hassle. It's such a hearty and delicious meal for the fall or winter season. —Nancy Barker, Peoria, Arizona

    Made it for the first time tonight. Family loved it. Definitely a keeper. Only had 1 cup of celery so also added one cup of yellow bell peppers.

    Good recipe. I've tried this in the crockpot to cook for Sunday lunch after church, but if we're hungry for this dish during the week, I cook it in the oven, covered, at 375 for about 45-50 minutes. Someone in a previous comment asked about more veggies, I've been known to peel and dice a couple of carrots to add to the veggie mix. It didn't seem to dry it out any. I've also substituted cream of celery soup if I'm out of cream of mushroom. Good solid recipe as it's written or with some simple change ups.

    to pdjones: yes, you can add veggies! I precooked until almost tender: onions, shredded carrots, diced red bell pepper, celery, quartered and sliced zucchini. Family loved it!!

    Could you had a few more vegetables without it getting too dry?

    This was absolutely delicious. All three of us loved it. I used a slightly sweet cornbread but I think it would be good with a more savory recipe too.

    Looks delicious. What do you suggest to use for the cornbread? Store bought or homemade? Sweet or Savory?

    A simple, tasty and delicious meal. My whole family loved it. I only made one change. I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup( 2 family members don't like mushrooms.....gasp).
