If you're looking for comfort food, this is it! I used fresh bread cubes along with the cornbread and instead of layering the chicken I combined everything and added extra chicken broth and an extra egg. Be sure to make the gravy that goes with it - it makes the dish! And I used the meat from a rotisserie chicken to make it super easy to put together!

I have made this recipe exactly as stated and I have made it with changes. If you do not have time to make the "stuffing" part of the recipe, I have found that a box of the chicken flavored stuffing works well. Mix as directed on box and then layer in your baking dish on top of the chicken. My family likes this dish and I have made it both ways.

When making this again, will alter it by leaving out the cornbread. Other than that, is very very satisfying.

I think all sites that allow recipe reviews should be revamped. I thought the point of these was for people who actually tried the recipe.Not commentary or complaints on nutritional opinion or ingredients and cooking methods.Not on this one specifically but happens more and more.When you get people who comment like these it misleads the results. I thought the recipe was fairly good.Plenty of room for personalization. I cant believe people left the hostile and rude comments about something that was obviously an honest mistake for whoever it was that put that newsletter out. I dont know when people were supposed to be perfect. I know I am not and make mistakes.

it was okay - Ihave another recipe very similar to this - great to make with leftovers.

This is more complicated than it needs to be but is pretty good. Knoors makes a turkey gravy mix that is better than using broth or bouillon. Lastly, I wish there were a way to comment without having to rate the recipe -- it skews the results and can make them meaningless.

GREAT weeknight recipe. I added chicken bouillon to the gravy and used more SEASONED stuffing to replace the corn bread. I used raw chicken which cooked nicely during the baking time. More onion and celery too.

I have a similar recipe, except it calls for cr of mushroom or checken soup instead of broth, and adds mixed veggies. This uses leftover turkey and dressing. Yummy! Reta
