Chew This! Slow Cooker Chicken and Dressing

Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! As many of you know, I write a food column for “The Courier-Times” on the first and third Sundays of each month called “Chew This!” I absolutely love it and love sharing my family recipes, stories and memories.

My newest recipe is a slow cooker favorite around here! It is so easy – so delicious – and so flavorful that you will not believe it! When I developed this recipe I wanted to take your traditional turkey and dressing and up the flavor – ease – and I wanted to use chicken instead. All in all – fabulous results the first try! I tweaked the type of cheese – cook time – amount of cream soup and it was a hit! So many of my taste testers asked for this recipe – here you go! 

I am also sharing my recipe for the perfect go-to sides with this meal – honey corn and cooked to death green beans – I mean how bad could that be!? 

Also my “Ask and Answer” feature is all about how to make your own version of the popular canned cream soups! Phyllis Riggs shared with me her recipe and I am passing that along to you!

Here are the ingredients / brands that I use for this recipe that I thought I would share. 

Grandma Barbra’s Slow Cooker Pork Roast 

This recipe comes straight from my Grandma Barbra. She served this for Easter and everyone went crazy so naturally I had to find out the recipe!

Grandma Barbra’s Slow Cooker Pork Roast

1 pork roast (between 2-3 pounds)
1 bottle Italian salad dressing
3/4 cup water
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper

In a shallow baking dish combine the pork roast with the bottle of Italian salad dressing. Cover with aluminum foil and place into the refrigerator overnight – or at least 6 hours.

Line your slow cooker with a plastic slow cooker liner, for easier cleanup, or lightly spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Place pork roast inside carefully along with water. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. 

Cook on high for 4 hours. Turn down and cook on low for 4 additional hours. At the end of the cooking time, shread the pork with two forks. 

Serve on hamburger buns with BBQ sauce and pickles if desired. 

Enjoy!

Getting the orders ready! Thank you all so much for the continued dedication and support – means everything to me!

I’ve been stamping Grandma Deloris’ name on her recipe – page 5. She really wanted to autograph them all but she’s weak and her stamina is not the best – so I had a stamp made. She loves that she’s been a part of this journey with me!


Grandma Barbra has been signing boxes and boxes and boxes of books – and not complaining one bit! She wrote the foreword for my cookbook and loves signing the page that has her printed words. Such a special moment. Said she can’t believe she’s doing this ROUND TWO! Hahaha

Cheesy Sliders 

My cousin Kylie tried these “Cheesy Sliders” from this Facebook video – https://www.facebook.com/HowtoCookGuide/videos/417340251949184/ – and I had to try them myself! She said they were delicious – and I would have to agree! Simple – delicious – flavorful! The spices I use can be substituted for your favorite variety. Experiment and have fun! 

Cheesy Sliders

1 package slider buns
10 slices Colby cheese
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon paprkia

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. 

Crumble and cook the ground beef in a large skillet. About halfway through the cooking time add the chopped onion, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, mustard powder and paprika. Drain the beef once fully cooked. 

Spray a 9×9-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place the bottom part of 9 slider buns into the pan. 

Pour evenly the beef mixture over the bottom buns. Place the slices of cheese over the top of the beef. Tear some of the cheese slices to fit and cover all the beef. 

Place top buns on top and place in preheated oven for 30 minutes. 

Bake, remove to cool slightly before serving. 

Enjoy!

I love salmon – not to mention the many health benefits that go along with it – and my recipe for “Salmon Patties” is a multi-generational recipe that is delicious – quick – flavorful and versatile. Squeeze lemon on the patties at the end for a burst of fresh lemon flavor that pairs well with the salmon or sprinkle on chopped chive at the end and serve alongside macaroni and tomatoes. A recipe sure to please! 

Also in this column is my “Ask and Answer” feature explaining the difference between dry yeast and instant yeast. Several people have written to me wondering the difference – and there is quite a difference! They are in the same “family” but work in totally unique ways.
