The absolute best chicken dressing I have ever eaten. I have tried lots of dressing, and usually it's too bland, or too dry, or too much sage. But this is perfect.

My husband says it's the best dressing he's ever had! And I agree :) We'll be having this recipe for years to come! Thanks.

Such great stuffing right here! If you haven't tried it, I would suggest you do, as this was a real family pleaser at my house! We will have this often as a side to our chicken from now on!
