- 1 1/2 loaves homemade bread
- 1 pound butter
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 3/4 cup celery, chopped, optional
- Meat from a whole chicken, stewed and removed from bones
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Turn into a large roast pan and bake covered for a half-hour to an hour, until heated through. Dampen with water around the edge if it begins dry out. Stir often to prevent sticking.
Lift meat from broth and cool. Cut into small pieces and set aside. Pour broth into bowl and set aside.
Stir in reserved broth over low heat, stirring constantly until gravy is smooth and thickened. Add giblets to gravy and warm. Serve over mashed potatoes and filling.
