If you use the modifications suggested here, this is a 5 star recipe. I only used 1 can of cream of chicken soup and added some chicken broth at the beginning - just enough to make it all moist. I also checked it at least once an hour to make sure it was still moist. Very, very good.

Pretty good, I call it "Chicken Mush" the flavor was kinda lacking so I had to add some more spices, and the texture was deff lacking. Next time I will just use boxed stuffing mix instead of the day old bread, it will be quicker with better flavor

This tasted really good. However, the dressing was a little soggy. Next time, I think I'll add only one can of chicken broth. Also, I made things a lot easier on myself by NOT cooking the chicken before putting it in the crockpot. I just put the whole boneless, skinless breast halves in the crockpot and covered it with the mixture. Then I cooked on my "auto" setting for about 7 hours (that's 2 hours on high and the remaining time on low). It wouldn't have had to cook that long though for the chicken to be done. You could cook on high for 3-4 hours and it'll be done. The chicken just falls apart. Delicious.

This was great,but I did take caution on the runny issues that others had . I mix the soup with some broth before adding to mix then contiune to add broth to mix until the mix remind me of a cormbread batter or pancake batter you know kinda thick,also add tsp. of poultry season and a extra tsp. of sage.I actually thinking about using this recipe at christmas this year

Great recipe. In order to cut down on moisture, I cut down on the liquids. Cut broth and cream of chicken soup in half. I also leave the lid off the crockpot for the last hour and keep stirring it to help dry it out a bit. Otherwise, if you follow the recipe without modifications, the stuffing turns out kind of soggy.

This is cooking in my Crockpot right now, and I just sneaked a taste. PERFECTION! This is the dressing I remember from my childhood, and what I've been trying to achieve all these years! The changes I made were minimal and reflect my personal tastes, but I think it would have been just as good exactly as written. I didn't add chicken because we like ours separate, and I didn't use the white bread. I added a cup of chopped celery and sauteed it with the onion and sage in 2 T. margarine. I added that to all the wet ingredients and seasonings, then crumbled cornbread into the mixture until it was the consistency I wanted. Because the Crockpot is a very "moist" cooking environment, it will only thicken a bit while cooking, so make sure it's not too soupy at the beginning. Thank you, Mindy, for such a fantastic recipe. I can't wait to make this for my family at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I will add celery to this next time. Cut the liquid down one can and I like poultry seasoning so I would add a tsp. of that to it, it will probably be a lot better, for me. But, very good dish just the same.
