Chicken and Dressing Casserole

In the late 80's or early 90's, Delta Omicron Sorority sold cookbooks as a fundraiser.  I was a member of this sorority and bought one for myself.  It was published in 1989, and the name of it is Beta Sigma Phi Comfort Foods, and it is a compilation of recipes from Beta Sigma Phi sororities from all over the country.  It is one of my favorite cookbooks.

This is a great recipe to take to a potluck or to a friend or family member in need.  It never fails to please, and even in the days of getting recipes on the internet, I often get requests for this recipe.  It is one of my "go-to" comfort food dishes.

Chicken and Dressing Casserole:
(adapted from the Comfort Foods cookbook)

2 to 3 eggs beaten
1 10-ounce can cream of celery soup
1 10-ounce can cream of mushroom soup
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 cups shredded cheese
1 - 6-ounce package of corn bread stuffing mix
2 bone-in chicken breasts cooked and shredded
2 1/2 cups broth
1 box of chicken broth

Cook chicken breasts in boxed chicken broth in a crockpot on high setting for three hours and low setting for one hour or cook on low until chicken is done.  Remove chicken from crockpot, reserving the broth.  Let chicken cool, and shred by hand.

In a bowl, combine eggs, soups, pepper, 1 cup of shredded cheese, corn bread stuffing mix, and 2 1/2 cups of broth from crockpot, mixing well.  Stir in shredded chicken.  Spoon into a 10 x 10 x 2 inch baking dish.  Top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
