Crockpot Stuffing/Casserole II (M, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 12 side dish or 6 main dish servings

8 oz. mushrooms, sliced (3 cups) (canned mushrooms are OK, but I prefer fresh)
3/4 cup sliced celery
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup snipped fresh basil
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. pepper
8 cups dry bread cubes
2 cups coarsely chopped cooked chicken or turkey
1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans

In a large skillet, cook mushrooms, celery, and onion in margarine over medium heat about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in basil and pepper.

Combine mushroom mixture, dry bread cubes, and cooked chicken. Add enough of the chicken broth to moisten, tossing gently.

Spoon chicken mixture into 3-1/2- or 4-quart crockpot. Cover; cook on low heat setting for 3-1/2 to 4 hours. Gently stir in nuts.

Poster's Notes:
This is a different alternative to turkey and stuffing. Makes a good side dish as well. It's great for using leftover chicken. I have also made this with smoked turkey/chicken, omitting the basil, with very good results.
