Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a 9x13 pan or baking dish with oil or non-stick cooking spray.
Heat your chicken broth in the microwave for 2 minutes on high, or heat to a low boil in a small saucepan on the stovetop.
1 ½ cups chicken broth
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Stove Top Stuffing Mix with heated broth, butter, and milk. Add optional ingredients onion, celery, and/or the dried cranberries if desired. Mix until well combined and set aside.
6 oz Stove Top Stuffing boxed mix, ½ cup milk, 2 tablespoon butter, ½ cup white onion, ½ cup celery, ½ cup dried cranberries
Trim any fat from the chicken breasts, then use a sharp knife to cut the chicken breasts ¾ of the way through the thickest portion of the breasts (butterfly-style). Do this carefully, so that you do not cut all the way through the chicken.
24 oz chicken breasts
Fill each chicken breast with ¼ portion of the stuffing mixture and place them into the prepared baking dish. Mix together the salt, pepper, and garlic powder then sprinkle seasoning onto each stuffed breast.
½ teaspoon each, salt & pepper, ¼ teaspoon onion powder
Cover the stuffed chicken breasts with a sheet of aluminum foil then bake in the middle of the center rack in your oven at 375°F (190°C) for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and continue cooking for an additional 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. The internal temperature should reach a minimum of 165°F (74°C) before serving.
Remove from the oven when done and serve immediately. Pour gravy over when serving, if desired.
