    Irishcolleen's Note:

    This was something I always looked forward to during the holidays. I don't know why Mama only made it, then! I've broken that tradition by making it anytime I get hungry for it. However, when it's stuffed inside of the turkey, it's even better! I hope you enjoy! :)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Prepare cornbread as package directs. I use a Mexican Cornbread mix. Don’t use one that contains sugar.
    2. 2
      When your cornbread has cooled, break it and the toast into a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Sauté onions, celery, and green bell pepper, optional red bell pepper, and garlic in butter until onions are transparent.
    4. 4
      Add the shredded chicken and the sautéed veggies into the cornbread mixture. Use your hands to really mix it up.
    5. 5
      Add poultry seasoning and cayenne pepper, mixing well.
    6. 6
      Add in the broth a little at a time. Add in just enough to make it thick and somewhat soupy. Mix, well.
    7. 7
      Give it a taste. It should taste exactly the way you want your dressing to taste. If it needs more spices add them here.
    8. 8
      When you are content with the taste, stir in the eggs.
    9. 9
      Pour into a buttered 9 X 13 casserole dish.
    10. 10
      Bake for 45 minutes or until set.

      I made this with a few adjustments because I did not have bell peppers, but the base was yummy! I wish I had made it exact as I know it would be fabulous. My husband told me to save this recipe so I created an account just for it. :) You have to try won't be disappointed.

      Just plain delicious! I used to use sweet cornbread but have now switched over to the mexican- style. I add a bit more chicken and butter but that's the only difference. I plan to use this recipe over and over again.
