Savory Chicken Apple Stuffing

This recipe is enough to stuff a 14-18 lb. turkey, cut recipe down to 2/3 to stuff a roasting chicken (5-6 lbs.)

3 lbs. ground chicken (ground turkey also works fine)
32 oz. chicken broth or stock
2 large apples, any variety, peeled and chopped
48 oz. bread, any variety, cubed (hearty breads work great)
2 T. fennel seed
1 T. basil
4 T. poultry seasoning
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 medium onion, finely diced

In a large, deep skillet, add chicken, onion, garlic, red bell pepper, and all seasonings. Cook over medium heat, until chicken is cooked through and onions are translucent. Add apple and bread, toss together to combine. Add in chicken stock, 1 C. at a time, until stuffing reaches your desired consistency.

Put stuffing into your turkey (or chicken), or into an oven-safe casserole.
Roast until poultry is fully cooked, or roast stuffing separately at 350 for 1 hour. Stuffing is done when heated through and top is lightly crispy.

Yields = 14-16 servings
