I’m wondering about using 2 boxes of stuffing? Would I need to increase the broth or change anything else ? Really like the recipe.
If you are using 2 boxes, I would double the amount of broth an the other ingredients. Thanks!
Thanks for the reply. I’m making this tonight. Will let everyone know how it turns out.
A terrific recipe, but I gave it only 4 stars b/c I changed it up a bit to suit my family’s palates & needs. I used leftover chicken breasts (which I diced) & used Low Sodium Cream Of Mushroom Soup. I also used Lite Sour Cream, Lite Broth, & Low Sodium Stuffing Mix. We love Broccoli, so I added several fine-sized florets. I served this wonderful & healthy Casserole with a huge Tossed Salad. Everyone here enjoyed the meal, even the kiddoes – who love veggies. Thanks for your delicious recipes.
