My mother never made just dressing, it was always chicken and dressing. This is her recipe with a few of my additions. I add sage and chicken soup to mine. Mother always used a hen and I use just a regular frying chicken (to me hen had to much fat) Put the two recipes together and this is the best dressing ever.

How to Make Chicken and Corn Bread Dressing

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut up fryer and put in stock pot covered with water. Add about 1 to 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper. Boil until done. zRemove all bones, skin, fat. Save broth for dressing. Set chicken aside.
  2. Put chopped celery and onion in pot covered with cold water. Add about 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Add the 6 eggs in this pot. (Be sure eggs are covered with water) Boil until celery and onions and eggs are done. About 15 minutes. Drain and peel eggs and chop. Set all aside.
  3. Crumble up cornbread in a large pan.(I use dishpan)add broth from chicken and add sliced bread and mix until all cornbread is moist. Add additional canned broth to make the cornbread very moist but not
    "soupy".
  4. Add celery, onions, chopped boiled eggs and chicken. Mix all together. May need more broth at this point. Add sage, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Add cream of chicken soup, mix well and taste to see if needs additonal seasoning. Need good rich flavor. (May need more boullion or additional can of cream of chicken soup, sage, poutry seasoning, salt or pepper). Suite your own taste at this point. Divide into 2 casserole dishes. Even though all ingredients are already cooked, you still need to bake it about 45 minutes at 400 degress or until nicely browned.
  5. This can easily be doubled. Just add more bread, broth and seasonings. Cant have dressing without giblet gravy and cranberry sauce. (I have posted my giblet gravy recipe also)
