Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing

Someone asked me recently for a chicken dressing mix and instantly thought of the one we're served at family dinners here in Texas. It's wonderful. Back up North we have stuffing, and here in Texas (the south) they have dressing, which is more of a casserole than anything, but its great. Sharing this one for those in search of a good recipe for their holiday table.

Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing

1 Packet of Corn Kits, baked, cooled and crumbled
1 Chicken, cooked, cooled and chopped (I buy a roasted chicken)
1 cup Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Chopped Onion
1/2 Cup Chopped Celery
1/2 stick of margarine
1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
Salt and Pepper

Saute the onions and celery in the margarine. Mix into the cornbread, broth and soup mixture. Place half in a casserole dish sprayed with Pam. Put the chopped chicken over that and rest of cornbread mixture. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Corn Kits is a brand new corn bread muffin mix. You could substitute your favorite.
