How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken & Dressing Casserole

This casserole is super easy to make with simple ingredients. Start with making the cornbread dressing. In a large bowl, crumble up cooked cornbread. Tear up some day-old white bread and it in the bowl. Add finely chopped onion, chopped celery, sage, thyme, salt, pepper, eggs, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, and cream of mushroom soup to the bread cubes. Mix well. Stir in rotisserie chicken meat. Spray the crock pot liner with cooking spray. Transfer the chicken mixture to a slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 or 5 hours. Garnish with fresh parsley.
