I made this for my family on Thanksgiving and they all loved it. I added more chicken broth than the recipe called for. My family likes dressing really moist

I made this for Thanksgiving, and I have to say I will definitely make this again. I doubled the recipe, and used Goya Sazon for the seasoned salt. I also only used half the amount oil since it didnt seem to need it, and it turned out delicious and amazing. Definitely a keeper.

When I worked at Luby's in Lake Jackson, TX, 26 years ago, we used this basic recipe, except we didn't use cornbread because our leftover cornbread had jalape
