  • Bake bread cubes in the preheated oven until bread is toasted, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a bowl using a slotted spoon; reserve drippings in the skillet.

  • Cook and stir celery, onion, and garlic in the skillet with sausage drippings over medium heat until vegetables are soft, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Put crumbled corn bread in a large bowl; add bread cubes, celery mixture, sausage, cream of chicken soup, shredded chicken, 1 sleeve crushed buttery round crackers, and eggs. Stir well. Pour in enough chicken broth to make mixture extremely moist. Spoon mixture into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle 1/4 cup crushed buttery round crackers over casserole; drizzle with melted butter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and topping is lightly browned, about 45 minutes.

Used croutons instead of French bread also added some dried sage thyme salt and pepper to the sausage/celery mixture because I couldn't find sausage with sage. Read More

I gave it two stars because I made a mess of it. I put too much broth in the mixture and ended up with a chicken/sausage mush. The cornbread and bread cubes disintegrated. It tasted good but the consistency was awful. I will give this a try again with much less chicken broth. Read More
