Tasty Tuesday Crockpot Chicken & Dressing & Link Up

Hi friends!  Welcome to another Tasty Tuesday, I'm so glad you're here!
(Also a little side note- I know I'm behind on pinning recipes from last week's party and I apologize   I'm sorry they are late and promise they will still get pinned, I will get caught up!  Thanks for the patience friends!!)
I cannot tell you how many Thanksgivings have closed with me begging my mother to make her homemade, incredible dressing every single day.  While some people wait all year for turkey or pies, for me it's always been the dressing.  It's always around this time of year that the anticipation is almost too much for my dressing-loving-soul and 2 more months is an awful long time to hold out.
Enter: this delicious crockpot meal.
This is the perfect solution for my "I need dressing now" state of mind and it's pure comfort food.  Bonus-the Mr. adores it and makes me promise to not tell either one of our mother's that this dressing is his absolute favorite.  Though it does take some prep work it is 100% worth it and much easier/faster than the dressing your mom makes on Thanksgiving.  Let's get started...

-9x13 dish of cornbread, cooled & crumbled (this would be 2 of the packets, just don't use corn muffin mix)
-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and torn into bite size pieces (take the easy way and get a rotisserie)
-2 slices of bread, toasted and torn into small pieces
-2 eggs, hardboiled and chopped
-1 small onion, chopped
-2 stalks of celery, chopped
-1/2 teaspoon sage
-salt and pepper to taste
-2 10.75 oz. cans cream of chicken soup
-1 stick melted butter
-2 cups chicken broth

In a large bowl combine everything except 1 can cream of chicken soup and the chicken.

Spray the crockpot with cooking spray and and spread half of the remaining can of cream of chicken soup on the bottom.

Next add 1/3 of the dressing mixture.

Add half of the chicken.

Repeat the dressing and chicken layers.  Finally top with the remaining half of cream of chicken soup.

Cook this on high for 1 hour, then turn it down to low for 2-3 more hours.  (Side note-my husband really like a bit of a "bite" in his food, so this is perfect for him, but if you like your onions and celery softer just sauté it a bit until they are crisp-tender before adding it to the crockpot.
