Chicken and Dressing Casserole

I got this recipe from a friend, and my whole family loves it – not to mention how easy it is to make! Note: If you wish, you can just boil 4 or 5 boneless chicken breasts instead of using a whole chicken.

I had a similar recipe years ago but it never “turned out.” This one definitely did! Enjoyed every bite. Made it the night before refrigerated overnight and put it in the oven when I came home from work – PERFECT!


cornbread (about 4 C. crumbled)

4 large chicken breast, cooked and cubed

1 10.5 oz. can cream of mushroom soup

1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning (optional)

4 eggs, boiled and chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 stalk celery, diced

2 C. chicken broth

2 T. melted butter

1/4 tsp. salt

How to make:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and pour into a 9 x 13, lightly greased casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until set.


1/2 C. unsalted butter

1/2 C. all-purpose flour

1-quart chicken stock

1/3 C. heavy cream

1/4 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. black pepper

pinch of cayenne pepper

How to make Gravy :

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 minutes.

Gradually whisk in chicken stock. Reduce heat to low and cook and stir until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, 4-6 minutes. Stir in heavy cream, and season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.

Serve the casserole with gravy over the top and a big side of mashed potatoes.
