Thanksgiving Stuffing


This STUFFING is life. Of course, you can call it dressing, too. Whatever floats your boat! I got this recipe from a friend’s dad at least 35 years ago. The first time I tried it I was hooked. My kids would actually put a hit out on me if I stopped making this for turkey day. It’s that good. Shhhhh…the secret is the shredded chicken. Put this on your list for next year!
