Welcome to Monday everyone!! Our perfect spring weather continues here in Michigan slowly, steadily wiping away our memories of cold, snowy, rainy, dismal days. Days like today and the last two are what I look forward too once we get through the Christmas holidays….these are the days that I wait for and literally count down to.
Of course warmer temperatures has brought an increase in utilizing our bbq grill. This past weekend we spent time outside in the yard cleaning up and uncovering things so a quick hot dog or burger as we moved through Saturday and Sunday was perfect for us and tasty.
Grilling though did bring up a quick conversation on whether or not to leave the slow cooker out or to put it in the cabinet downstairs for the summer. For right now I’m opting to keep it out and use it at least once maybe twice a week during the summer. My reasoning is to use it instead of the oven in order to keep the kitchen cool.
Today, I have a tasty slow cooker recipe for you. When I first found this recipe and saved it I went back to it several times before deciding to give it a try. I hesitated because I just wasn’t sure how well a stove top stuffing would turn out in a slow cooker I was afraid it would either be undercooked or that it would turn to mush.
I’m happy to say that this chicken and stuffing dish turned out fantastic and I’m happy to share it with you today. The chicken was tender and the stuffing was nice and moist. We served it with mashed potatoes and peas and it was a delicious meal. Walt, not generally a fan of boxed stuffing gave it two thumbs up which means it will be a keeper in our house.
I found this recipe on http://team-t-adventures.blogspot.com/2010/01/easy-crockpot-chicken-stuffing.html through Pinterest. Give it a try, let us know how it turns out for you.
