"I wanted to love this recipe - I was so excited to make it. But no one in my house would eat it, including me. I think 3 cups of chicken broth is too much and the whole wheat bread taste is too strong - maybe use white bread or half white half whole wheat. I like the dried fruit and goat cheese but my husband did not. The whole dish was very mushy. It also dirties up a lot of dishes!"
