Recipe Notes

*Do not use freshly baked bread for this recipe. Stale (two day old) bread is better. If you don't have stale bread, cut the bread into cubes, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in 400 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes.

*You can use chicken stock in this recipe, however I find broth more flavorful so that's what I recommend.
