Crock Pot Chicken and Dressing Casserole consists of a traditional southern cornbread dressing with lots of tender, shredded chicken mixed in. Add some green beans and rolls and you have a comfort food meal that tastes just like Thanksgiving.
To make Crock Pot Chicken and Dressing Casserole begin by briefly cooking some onion and celery in a pan with melted butter. Cooking the onion and celery first adds so much flavor, plus it will really get the house smelling like Thanksgiving.
Next season 3 to 4 chicken breasts with seasoned salt and pepper and place them in the bottom of a 6-quart slow cooker.
Stir together 1 can of condensed cream of chicken soup, 1 can of condensed cream of celery soup, 2 large eggs, 2 cups of chicken broth, 1/2 cup of milk, dried sage, poultry seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Mix it all together really well and then stir in a 12-ounce bag of cornbread stuffing mix, and 3 cups of herbed stuffing mix. Stir in the onions and celery.
Spread the mixture on the top of the chicken breasts and scatter the butter pieces on top.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4 hours. Use a couple of forks and shred the chicken and mix it into the dressing.
Leftovers reheat really well but can get a little dry. Just keep a little extra chicken broth on hand to moisten it up again.
Two cans of Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup can be used instead of one can of Condensed Cream of Chicken and one can of Condensed Cream of Celery Soup.

Could i make this and leave the chicken breast out?
Everyone loved this! It was so easy to make and tasted even better the second day
Made this last night and my family loved it!! Will definitely be making it again!
Can you put this together and then in refrigerator overnight?
I cannot find Pepperidge farm cornbread dressing – can I use Stouffers cornbread dressing? I did find Pepperidge farm herb dressing but no one has the cornbread one.
This is exactly the recipe I’ve been looking for! Thank you!
If you can’t adjust the sodium in this delicious recipe, then you aren’t a very good cook. I’m just saying.
I’m making it right now. Added diff things to avoid sodium. Also I’m not a salt person and when I tasted it you couldn’t tell. I’m also mixing a chicken Brest I boiled and the left overs of a rotisserie chicken. This recipe is perfect for today and I’m even gonna try to freeze the left overs….anyone got suggestions for that?? This is my quick go to before I cook the big meal on Christmas Day that way everyone gets their traditional and tomorrow we will have our traditional tenderloin with all the fixings. I always get stumped on veggies fo sides with this But I’ll figure something out as usual. Thank you for your recipes I always love them. And forget those negative folks. They can keep to their normal things they cook. Obviously not ready for any change yet. Happy Holidays to all!!
That looks really AMAZING!!
My Mom made something similar with leftover turkey dinner. She used leftover turkey, stuffing and gravy. Baked in oven my family loved it.
Y’all are killing me with all the negative comments. Adjust it for your lifestyle and if there are health issues don’t eat it if you are not supposed to. There are low sodium soups, broths and no salt butter. Don’t salt the chicken. I don’t need a lot of salt either, so I make adjustments. If I see a recipe I can’t eat, I just pass it over. I don’t trash it just because I shouldn’t eat it. Just be kind.
Yes Tammy! I loooove your comment.. ditto!!! I hate negativity, I go by the old rule, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything. Adjust it to your liking or don’t make it.
I totally agree with you! I don’t know why people find it necessary to make their not so nice comments when something isn’t what they can eat or shouldn’t eat! It’s the holidays for pete’s sake – be nice to one another.
Your response could have been more kind to the lady who cannot use salt. I’m sure there’a good reason she cannot have salt. You could have just said for those with salt issuses, just leave out the salt or use low sodium items in it’s place. It’s not negative not to leave the salt out. But she did say forget for those negative folks to just use it as it is. That wasn’t nice either. But the recipe seems to work for all.
Mrs. Dash has a poultry seasoning to replace salt. it is so good. Also Herb-Ox granduales are low to no sodium for chicken and beef. Add about 2 tbsp to your soup mixture. Tons of flavor with both.
All y’all worried about the sodium level, give me a plate full or two and a fork and I’ll show you who’s worried about the sodium level.
Leslie is right about the sodium levels as shown. However you can use lower sodium versions of the soup and broth. Also, instead of seasoned salt, substitute Emeril’s Original Essence. For the white bread dressing, you can make your own whole wheat version in the oven and add poultry seasoning.
Can you use turkey instead?
