  • Stove Top
  • Oven


  • 1 loaf Honey Wheat Bread
  • 4 tablespoons Salted Butter divided
  • 2 Celery Stalks diced
  • ½ White Onion minced
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Parsley
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • cups Chicken Broth


  • Toast the loaf of bread and set aside.
  • Next in a medium size pot add 2 tablespoons butter, and melt. Then add celery, onions, parsley, salt, and pepper. Mix well then add in a ¼ cup of the broth. Cook on medium-high heat until translucent (about 5 minutes). Then add in the remaining chicken broth.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cube toasted bread by slicing or tearing with your hands.
  • Spray a large oven-safe dish with cooking spray. Add the cubed bread and the chicken broth mixture in the dish. Slowly add and mix. Top with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes with casserole dish lid on. Then take the lid off and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the stuffing is hot. Make sure you don’t burn the top of the stuffing. You just want the top to be crispy.
