Chicken and Dressing: Everyone's Favorite Dinner GuestComfort food at its finest, chicken and dressing is a Thanksgiving staple that will send all of your dinner guests running to the table. If you're a dressing newbie in search of a recipe, you're in luck! I've got one right here. And before you start reading, I'll let you in on a little secret: you can follow this recipe as closely or as loosely as you like, and it's still going to turn out delicious.
1-1.5 bags Herb Seasoned Stuffing (like the Pepperidge Farm blue bags)
1 cup cooked chicken
32 oz container chicken broth
1 medium sized onion
2-3 large stalks celery
1 stick butter
sage, to taste
poultry seasoning, to taste
salt, to taste
Pour stuffing into a large bowl. Chop celery and onion finely, and mix into stuffing. Melt stick of butter and pour over mixture. Add about half of the chicken broth container and stir. Continue adding chicken broth until the mixture forms a thick liquid. The soupier it is, the longer it will take to bake. Start adding seasonings, tasting frequently until you're happy with the mixture. You will use more poultry seasoning than sage and salt. Pour/scrape mixture into a 9x13 in baking pan and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes, until dressing is firm around the edges and barely jiggles in the middle. Then you can continue to bake, uncovered, until browned, or pull out and serve immediately.
