Copycat Stove Top Chicken Stuffing

I’ve made my share of Stove Top Chicken Stuffing. It’s fast, easy, cheap and good. In my bachelor days you’d always find a box or two in my pantry. Now that I cook a lot more from scratch, I decided it was time to give making a copycat of the classic boxed stuffing a shot. And you know what? Man, was it ever as good as the boxed stuff and mighty fun and easy to make!

Copycat Stove Top Chicken Stuffing

I will definitely double (or triple) this recipe for copycat Stove Top Chicken Stuffing next time. I admit, as much as I love Thanksgiving turkey, I’m really more partial to the stuffing and mashed potatoes, each loaded up with tons of gravy. And for me, my go-to gravy is my make-ahead holiday gravy. I don’t just double the gravy recipe either. More like 6 times as much as the recipe states. Maybe 7. Or 8. Like I said, I love gravy.

Also try my crazy-good slow cooker holiday green bean casserole.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spread the bread pieces out on a large baking sheet. Lay the sheet on the counter top for one day, stirring occasionally. You want the bread to get slightly crunchy and dry.
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Note: Baking is only required if you desired a stuffing with a more crunchy texture.
  • In a pan or pot large enough to hold all of the bread, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the celery and saute for 5 minutes.
  • And all remaining ingredients (do not add the bread yet). Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in the bread crumbs and gently stir to coat. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  • Remove lid and fluff the mixture and let sit for another 5 minutes.
  • If baking, transfer to a 9″ x 9″ baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 20 minutes or until the desired color and texture has been achieved.

  1. Made this for Thanksgiving and it was great. Delivered as advertised – a great copycat of StoveTop Stuffing. But made a small alteration – when I made a practice batch exactly according to the recipe, it was too salty. So this time I cut out the celery salt, and substituted a 1/4 tsp of crushed celery seed. Added 1 lb of sausage just to give it some more flavor. Used packaged stuffing bread instead of Texas Toast just because it was easier. This will be my go-to Thanksgiving stuffing. Next time might add a bit of fine diced apple for a little sweetness.
