Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing

Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing – I did hear many calls this side dish stuffing too, and it was explained to me that in the USA when the turkey is stuffed with dressing it is called stuffing rather than dressing.

PIN TO MAKE LATER

It is interesting to be introduced to new delicious dishes but what’s more interesting is the story behind each dish and why it was created. In this post, I’m not going to talk about the history of Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing. So relax!

When I had dressing for the first time, it tasted more like falafel to me. I kid you not! There are many dressing recipes out there, some use bread (which I didn’t use in this recipe.) some used raw onion and vegetables, and some recipes do not call for any meat.

How To Make Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing

My recipe for Southern cornbread dressing is so flavorful and moist, it has chicken, eggs, and I’ve only used cornbread to make it.

I have sautéed the vegetables because this step added more crazy flavors to my cornbread dressing and made it tender.

I don’t usually add sage to my recipes, however, I enjoy drinking sage tea. But to make a mouth-watering cornbread dressing, sage is essential and is actually the king of all the spices used in this recipe.

You might notice a long list of ingredients but it will all come together in few steps.

I have used olive oil but you can use butter if you want your dressing to be richer in taste. I baked my dressing in an iron skillet just because it looks good on my dinner table, but of course, you can bake this Southern Chicken Cornbread Dressing in any baking pan, just make sure that the pan is greased properly.

As always, I would like to encourage you to make this recipe as is, it will help you later to decide on what add or omit.

    It makes sense to use “stuffing” to describe something that you actually stuff a turkey with, and “dressing” as a similar dish that’s made on its own, but I can tell you that, in fact, these words are used interchangeably. Most people have a preference, having grown up using one or the other of these words, and they use their preferred word to describe both. In any case, wow, does this sound delicious! I will definitely try it.
