Dad's Thanksgiving Stuffing

1)
- 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).

2)
- 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).

3)

- 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.
