 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       lb           Good quality bread
                         -cut in 1/2 inch cubes
    2       lb           Poached chicken thighs
      1/2   c            Minced fresh parsley
      3/4   c            Chopped onions
    1       c            Chopped celery
    1       c            Shredded carrot
    1 1/4   c            Fine.chopped boiled potatoes
    1       tb           Rubbed sage
    1       tb           Celery seed
    1       t            Dried thyme
      1/2   ts           Black pepper
      1/2   tb           Turmeric
    5                    Eggs
   12       oz           Evaporated milk
    2 1/2   c            Homemade Chicken Broth
                         -ÿÿcanned broth
 
      Preheat oven to 350 F.  On 2 cookie sheets, toast
   the bread cubes for 15 minutes, or until the bread is
   golden brown.  Transfer to a very large mixer bowl.
   Bone the chicken and very finely chop the meat,
   discarding the skin. (I do this in the food processor
   while chicken is still warm.) Add the chopped
   vegetables and chicken meat to the bread, along with
   the seasonings.  Toss. In a medium bowl, beat the
   eggs; add the evaporated milk and broth.  Pour over
   the bread mixture and blend. The mixture will be quite
   moist.  Allow to stand 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 F.
   Transfer the dressing to an oiled 3 quart glass
   casserole that is 10 inches in diameter and 3 inches
   deep (at this point, dressing can be frozen for future
   use; thaw before baking.) Bake dressing for 2 hours,
   or until the center of the dressing puffs up and is
   golden brown on top.
