Instructions Checklist
  • In a very large skillet cook chicken pieces, half at a time, in hot oil over medium heat until browned, turning once. Place chicken in a 4- to 5-quart slow cooker (see Tip). Top with leek or onion. In a large bowl combine bread cubes, tomatoes, and carrots. In a small bowl combine chicken broth, thyme, and pepper. Drizzle bread cube mixture with broth mixture, lightly tossing to mix. (Stuffing will not be completely moistened.) Lightly pack stuffing on top of chicken and leek.

Tips

Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
