Copycat Stove Top Chicken Stuffing

Copycat Stove Top Chicken Stuffing

 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!

  • 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.
