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.
