Chicken and Dressing

I've had several emails or messages wanting my chicken and dressing recipe.  To be honest, I really don't measure anything and until Mary Avery asked for it, I really didn't have a recipe.  But here is the "recipe" for those of you who have asked for it.

Jane's Chicken and Dressing

2 – 3 large chicken breasts, cooked and torn into bite size pieces
         (Save a little for the gravy)
        (or buy rotisserie chicken and pull chicken off bone)

2 cans cream of chicken soup

2 cups of chicken broth (canned or use the broth if you cook your own chicken)

½ large onion chopped

3 – 4 stalks of celery chopped

½ stick of butter

1 pan of cornbread cooked and cooled (do day before if you want)

½ bag of Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
    (I use the bag that says wheat and white bread seasoned)

¼ teaspoon sage or ½ teas. Poultry seasoning

2 eggs, beaten

--Saute onion and celery in butter. Set aside.

--Crumble cooled cornbread and mix together with stuffing mix.

--Stir in onion, celery, butter mixture
   then add 2 cans cream of chicken soup,
  chicken broth, sage or seasoning and mix together well.
  (At this point I take a bite to see if it needs more seasoning, and…really…
   I just want a bite…Ha!)

--Then add in the 2 eggs and stir mixture well.

--In a 9 x 13 baking dish, put about ½ the mixture, then put your cooked chicken on top of that layer. (I usually moisten the chicken with a little extra chicken broth). Then add the rest of the dressing on top of the chicken.

Bake at 325 about 30- 45 minutes until brown and slightly firm to touch.

Easy Gravy

Buy two packets of chicken or turkey gravy mix and prepare as directed.

Add about ½ to whole can of cream of chicken soup.

Add 2 chopped boiled eggs and some of the cooked chicken chopped up.

Thank you so much for that pumpkin dip recipe. I love that stuff, but have never known how it is made!
