    Made this but omitted the eggs. Made my own chicken gravy and mashed potatoes. Layered stuffing, chicken and potatoes. Added a little gravy between the stuffing and chicken. In the oven till hot. Served with homemade gravy and cranberry sauce. Whole family loved it.

    Made this for company and everyone thought the recipe was great! Easy to make. Next time, I am going to make a gravy to serve with it.

    Very good. I used my own chicken broth instead of canned. I baked it longer because it was pretty wet even though I reduced the broth because I had a 12 oz bag of stuffing croutons. It's probably just personal preference of how moist or dry you like your stuffing.

    Not having any leftover chicken on hand, I made this with 2 cans of chunk white-meat chicken from Sam's. It was excellent!
