Ingredients

3 1/2 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 cup dried mixed-fruit bits
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups finely chopped onion
1/2 cup thinly sliced celery
1 (14-ounce) package cubed country-style stuffing mix (such as Pepperidge Farm)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine broth and dried fruit in a small microwave-safe bowl; microwave at HIGH for 2 minutes or until hot. Cover and let stand 10 minutes.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and celery; cook 8 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add broth mixture, and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat; stir in stuffing mix, tossing well.

Spoon stuffing into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish; cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
