I checked "Just a Pinch" Southern cornbread dressings and not any of them was this recipe. It was the recipe that my mother always made. We did not have a turkey when I was growing up. We would have to buy one at the store and we could not afford one. We lived in the country. We had chickens for eggs and for eating. So each year mother would make this dressing and put the boiled chicken in the dressing. That way everyone had dressing and everyone had some chicken.
