Slow-Cooked Chicken and Stuffing

Prepared in a slow cooker, this tasty, no-fuss main dish has a flavorful blend of seasonings and the irresistible duo of tender chicken and moist dressing. It's nice enough for the holidays and easy enough to fix year-round. -Angie Marquart, New Washington, Ohio

    This is so good. I like to take it to potlucks, I never have leftovers. I make gravy to pour over your servings.

    I was going to make a double batch for the crockpot since mine oven was not working. Only good thing about this was the flavor. I am so glad that I had another batch of cubed bread thawed, as I ended up adding it to the dish. Stuffing was way too moist for my family's liking.

    I hAve been making this since it was first puBLISHED. I really like using homemade cream of mushroom soup in it. I just save up bread , freeze it, and when I have enough I make this. Bread varies from time to time.
