Chicken Bake with Sausage Dressing

Marcia McCance


I usually bring the dressing when eating at a family friend's house for Thanksgiving. The husband says my dressing is "killer" and loves eating the left overs.

On another occasion I had it in mind to bring a whole chicken dinner in a pot so I tried it and took it with me. It was so very excellent I wrote everything down and every so often I make it again, because it is just so good!

It certainly will feed a family well!

I hope you enjoy it too!

How to Make Chicken Bake with Sausage Dressing


  • 1Here is the recipe for the dressing part of this dish: My Favorite Sausage Dressing
  • 2Make the sausage bread dressing (above) in large covered roasting pan pushing down with a cooking spoon to remove air pockets making it flat and even. (Do not bake, just assemble and then layer as directed below.)
  • 3Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt, pepper and turmeric and layer on top of the dressing
  • 4Then layer:
    a. The thick onion slices on top of the chicken
    b. The thick potatoes -- sprinkled with salt, pepper and turmeric to taste
    c. Place the carrots into any open spaces
  • 5Cover and Bake at 350 for about 1 hour
    – or until a meat thermometer placed in the chicken reads 170 degrees F
  • 6When plating make sure to dip your large spoon deep into the pot to get all the chicken, dressing, potatoes and carrots for each plate.
  • 7My mouth is watering just thinking about it!! I hope you like it, too.
