Preparation
  • In a medium large saucepan, heat together the chicken stock and cream.

  • Season to taste.

  • Ladle the lower and top layers of the cornbread with the gravy and meat.
  • Serve immediately and garnish as desired.
Comments
This can be served on thick rich slices of homemade bread as well for a great meal.

Our favorite way to eat this is to use our saved leftover frozen chicken or turkey and frozen saved ham from past meals and cook this up and have it with a big ol' mess of fresh green beans in the summer when the beans come on! YUMMIE Southern Food for everyone.. Southern or Northern!

If you can fit dessert a little later on, try a hot homemade Apple Cobbler or Apple Crisp with vanilla ice cream!
