1 Box 6 Oz Stovetop stuffing mix for chicken (you can also use turkey)

1 Cup of finely chopped celery sticks

1/2 Cup of finely chopped onions

1 Tbsp of minced garlic

1-1/2 Cups of chicken broth or water

4 Tbsp of butter or margarine

Cooking instructions

1- First, in a medium saucepan, melt the butter or margarine. Then add the onions and garlic and sauté until translucent. Then add the chopped celery and cook for about 1 minute.

2- Second, add the chicken broth or water and bring it to a complete boil. Allow a few minutes to boil so the celery can soften. Immediately, turn off the heat and move the pan away. Then, gently stir in the stuffing mix with a fork, and cover the pan. Let stand for 5 minutes. 

3- Lastly, gently fluff the stuffing with a fork again, so everything is well incorporated. Be gentle so it will not become mushy. 

Serve and enjoy!

How to add the stuffing in the bird

To add the stuffing in the bird, prepare the stuffing as directed above in the cooking instructions. Then stuff the bird lightly with the prepared stuffing. Do not stuff the bird until ready to roast. Now, bake as directed on the poultry wrapper. 

The stuffing is done when a meat thermometer inserted in the center of stuffing reaches 165°F. Bake any extra stuffing in the separate covered baking dish with the bird for the last 30 minutes of the baking time. 

What to serve with this easy stovetop stuffing with celery and onion recipe

This stuffing recipe will go well with any dishes, especially turkey, but this easy sweet potato casserole with marshmallows is my favorite. I also like to pair it with bone-in pork chops; I like the combination. 

Tips for making the best stovetop stuffing recipe

  • Do not stir the stuffing with a wooden spoon, as it will make the bread mushy. 
  • Measure the liquids properly, because the amount of liquid will determine the proper cooking of the stuffing.
  • Make sure the chicken broth or water has boiled entirely before you add the stuffing, and after you pour in the stuffing, gently stir it with a fork. Cover the pan right away and remove it from the heat. Then wait 5 minutes and gently stir it with a fork again. Cover the lid back up again if some bread has not been thoroughly cooked. 
  • Sauté the vegetables for best flavor.
  • I have tried to add sausage to this stuffing and it tasted terrific, but make sure the links are fully cooked before you add the stuffing.
