DIRECTIONS

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