Chicken Dressing Casserole

My Mom makes the absolute best cornbread dressing for the Holidays. She said its a timely exercise - only meant to be done when you have plenty of time to pay attention. I wanted something that took less time but still tasted as well. My Mom and I recently put this together. I tried it from a combination of her recipe, trial and error and borrowing from others. It turned out delish, took far less time and freezes well. I recommend this recipe if you have a taste for dressing but little time to spare. As I'm single, I cut the recipe in half with many leftovers for the week.

How to Make Chicken Dressing Casserole

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • 2Debone chicken and chop into chunks into large mixing bowl. Add entire package of Pepperidge Farms cornbread crumbs. Stir chicken and cornbread crumbs to mix well.
  • 3In seperate bowl mix cream of mushroom soup and sour cream together. Mix well. Add 1 cup of chicken broth. Stir until well blended. Add the soup, cream, broth mixture to chicken cornbread mixture. Blend well.
  • 4Beat 3 eggs. Add to chicken mxture. Stir to blend eggs into the mixture well.
  • 5Sautee onions and celery in olive oil. (I sautee for only a few seconds as I prefer my onions and celery crispy)
  • 6Add sauteed onions and celery to mixture. Stir well. Add additional chicken broth until mixture is desired consistency. (I prefer a moist dressing so I add an additional cup and half to two cups of broth to my mixture.)

    Season to taste. (Go lightly with the salt as chicken broth can be salty. I am generous with the black pepper. I like spicy foods)
  • 7Bake in 400 degree preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  • 8GRAVY
    In saucepan on medium heat, add can of cream of chicken to 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth. Mix well. Add the chunks of dark meat chicken from rotisserie to mixture in sauce pan. Stir to blend well. Stir constantly. When mixture is blended well, slice boiled egg directly into mixture. Continue to stir. Season to taste. I do not add any salt, only black pepper. Allow mixture to come to a boil.

    Serve over dressing with cranberries. (I do not have a recipe for cranberry sauce... Please let me now if you do and share.)
