Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

  6. Dice 1/8 of an onion and the chicken sausages and brown them on the stovetop.
  7. Then, combine all ingredients into the slow cooker.  Stir thoroughly so that the bread cubes are covered with the broth.
  8. Cook on high for 2 hours.
  9. Stir occasionally (every 30 min or so) to make sure it cooks evenly.
  10. Transfer into a baking dish and bake for 10 minutes at 350 in the oven, if you like a crispy top (optional, but recommended!)
