Crockpot Chicken Cornbread Stuffing Casserole Recipe:

This recipe should be called Crockpot Thanksgiving Dinner because that’s exactly what it tastes like. Instead of whipping up an entire Thankgiving meal that destroys the kitchen, this meal could be substituted and nobody would complain.

It has all the elements of a Thanksgiving dinner:

Poultry (leftover chicken or turkey would do)

Celery and Onions (cooked in butter)

Stuffing (toasted cornbread cubes)

Gravy (cream soup and broth)

Thanksgiving flavors (poultry seasoning and rubbed sage)

Or whip it up all year long. Your family will gobble it up (no pun intended). 

After finding this in The Best of Country Cooking, I made it, and my husband claimed that it is his favorite crockpot chicken dinner ever.  He even ate the leftovers the next day for lunch.  That is a first. In our entire 12 years of marriage, he has never wanted leftovers, especially not the very next day after eating something.

There’s no doubt in my mind that this slow cooker chicken cornbread casserole will be on my monthly rotation of dinners.  I love it that much.

Hold on, I need to go eat some of those leftovers before my husband gets to them…

How to Make Chicken Cornbread Casserole in the Crock Pot:

Instructions:

  1. Toast cornbread cubes in a 350 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside.
  2. Saute diced onions and celery in butter until soft; stir in cream soups, broth, poultry seasoning, dried sage, salt and pepper.
  3. In a crock-pot insert that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, arrange toasted corn bread cubes and shredded, cooked chicken.
  4. Pour soup mixture over top, and gently stir until combined.
  5. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until completely warmed through.

Notes About Chicken Cornbread Casserole (without sour cream):

  • This is a great way to use up leftover cornbread such as our favorite version: Maryann’s Sweet Cornbread. Or, whip up a box of Jiffy Cornbread Mix for the perfect amount of cornbread cubes.
  • I love using a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store in this crock pot chicken and stuffing.
  • To make this a slow cooker Thanksgiving dinner, use cooked turkey instead of chicken.
  • Substitute cream of celery soup for cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup, if desired.
  • Fresh sage would be great instead of dried.
  • A casserole crock pot is the perfect cooking vessel; although, regular crock pots work fine too.
