Sometimes, you crave eggnog in May.

Sometimes, it’s Thanksgiving in summer.

It’s hard because we don’t usually have these any time of the year. After all, it will ruin the spirit of the season.

But, have you ever heard of the term “Summersgiving?”

Summersgiving is like Thanksgiving, but it’s celebrated, well, in Summer.

According to NARA:

“Summersgiving is a national day observed on the Saturday after the Summer Solstice. It was started in 2009 by Robert Solomon because he loved Thanksgiving so much and wanted to do something similar to celebrate summer with friends.”

If this is the first time that you’ve heard about it, feel free to be excited. Come to think of it, you can already start planning to celebrate Summersgiving this year.

Leslie Madren, the owner of the YouTube channel The Farming Pastor’s Wife, posted a video on her account with 83.2K subscribers.

She posted a simple recipe.

“Crockpot Summertime Thanksgiving in a Bowl.’

It’s a recipe that you can prepare and leave to cook. It’s perfect for those who are busy or are still working from home.

After work, you can enjoy this filling and delectable meal.

And it won’t heat the house.

To prepare a crockpot Summersgiving meal:

Step 1. Lay your chicken breasts in your crockpot.

Step 2. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Don’t add too much because you will use other seasonings and dressing.

Step 3. (Optional) In the video, she used chicken seasoning. You can also add.

Step 4. In a measuring bowl, pour the contents of the cream of chicken, and half a cup of sour cream.

Step 5. In a separate container, add chicken bouillon or powder and mix it with water.

Step 6. Once that is all mixed up, pour it into your sour cream and cream of chicken mixture.

Step 7. Go back to the crock-pot and add stove-top chicken stuffing. Summersgiving won’t be complete without it.

Step 8. Now, pour your cream mixture into your chicken. Spread it well.

Tip #1:

This is to cook for around 4 hours, but Leslie recommends that it’s best to check at 3 hours. Sometimes, depending on the chicken, the dish could turn out dry.

You may need to add some broth or water.

Tip # 2:

You could mix it or just allow it to be served whole.

Serve hot with your choice of side dishes. This meal would go really well with mashed potatoes, corn, peas, or any side dish you fancy.

Looks so good and the whole process was not that complicated.

According to her husband, the chicken was tender and moist. The seasoning was good and she was able to incorporate all the flavors.

He also showed how he butters his corn.
