    Next add your chopped onion, cream of celery soup, cream of mushroom soup and eggs. Stir until well blended.

    Add sage,salt and pepper according to your taste.
  • 6
    Once you have all of this mixed, add your chicken, mixing throughly. This mixture should be pourable and not hard to stir. If it is, just add a little more chicken broth, until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • 7
    Pour into large glass baking dish, that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray.

    Bake in oven, at 375 degrees, until golden brown approx. 1.5 hours. (You may have created 2 large portions of this dressing, depending on the thickness of your cornbread and size of your chicken) So, just freeze one, for cooking later! Serve with cranberry sauce.
