      I made this delicious stuffing to serve w/your Chicken With Bacon Cream Sauce & DH was quick to say it was his all-time favorite stuffing. I see it as tied w/another of my recipes that uses dried cranberries. I made a half recipe w/only 1 chg when I used ordinary whole wheat sandwich bread. This old dog did learn a cpl new tricks from your recipe: 1) How great bacon is as an add to stuffing & 2) How the use of egg & baking powder betters the texture w/o letting the stuffing get dry as it cooks. I used homemade chicken stock + the salt, but suggest to those who use canned broth & are salt-conscious that they wait to add salt till all else is combined. DH ordered your chicken + this recipe to be the stars of our next dinner party & I will be happy to oblige. Thx for posting this *keeper* recipe for us. :-)
