The original recipe came from my Dad's Mom. She was a great cook and made one of my other all-time favorite meals - Chicken Tetrazzini. My Mom has perfected the dressing recipe over the years. Chicken Legs can't get enough of this at the holidays. He especially likes it reheated at about 10:00 pm on Thanksgiving or Christmas night. Chicken Legs swears this is the best dressing you'll ever eat - I agree!
