Chicken (or turkey) 'n' Dressing Casserole

Chicken 'n' Dressing Casserole
from: Taste of Home
"This casserole is a real favorite in our area and in my family, too. It’s a great way to use leftover chicken or turkey, and so easy that even beginner cooks will have success making it."

TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 35 min.

4 cups cubed cooked chicken or turkey
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup milk
Salt and pepper to taste

2 celery ribs, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups unseasoned stuffing cubes, crushed
2 cups coarsely crumbled corn bread
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 egg, beaten

1/4 cup butter
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup milk

Place chicken in a greased 2-qt. baking dish; set aside. In a small saucepan, combine the flour, broth and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon over chicken.
In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Stir in seasonings. Remove from the heat; add the stuffing cubes, corn bread, broth and egg. Mix well. Spoon over chicken mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a thermometer inserted near the center reads 160°.
For gravy, melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add broth and milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken and dressing.
