Dad's Thanksgiving Stuffing

- 1 whole chicken

Boil the chicken for 1 hour in a pot of water with enough water to easily cover the chicken. When fully cooked, debone the chicken and put the cut-up meat back into the broth.

At this point, taste the broth and add some bullion as needed to create a nice tasty broth (even better than bullion is to flavor the broth with the drippings from the turkey).

- 1 stock celery
- 2 big onions
- 1 Tablespoon poultry seasoning
* be careful here cause too much/little can ruin the stuffing. Just do it to taste.
- 2 cubes of butter

Cut up the celery and onions and add to the broth. Add the poultry seasoning and butter. Now simmer the broth. Flavor to taste (salt and pepper).


- 5 loaves of bread

Cut up the bread and put aside. Remove broth from heat when veggies are cooked and allow to cool somewhat.

Put ½ of the bread into a big mixing bowl. Slowly mix all of the broth with the bread. When mixed, start adding a little bread at a time and mixing until right consistency (fairly moist but not soupy).

* to be creative, consider throwing in a handful of nuts, raisins, cranberries or whatever you like.
