  1. The last ingredient in your chicken in dressing recipe is: 1 (1/8 ounce) can cream of chicken soup. Do you mean 8 ounces of cream of chicken soup.?.... Your recipe looks excellent; going to try it on Thursday. Estus


  1. 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.
  2. On Thanksgiving I made two 10 inch cast iron pans of your chicken in dressing. All 9 adults said it was exceptional. It's the best I've ever eaten. The 5 little kids took one glance at it and turned their heads.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

  1. In 2nd batch, I mistakenly mixed the melted butter with the other ingredients; it made no difference; it turned out the same as the 1st batch.
