Add 1/2 up chicken broth to stuffing and mix thoroughly. Fill main turkey cavity with stuffing.

Cover tightly with buttered aluminum foil. Bake stuffing in dish alongside turkey until heated through, about 30 minutes.Uncover stuffing and bake until top begins to brown, about 15 minutes.
To bake all stuffing in pan:
Preheat oven to 350F. Butter 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Mix 1 1/2 cups chicken broth into stuffing. Transfer stuffing to prepared baking dish. Cover tightly with buttered aluminum foil. Bake until stuffing is firm and heated through, about 45 minutes. Uncover stuffing and bake until just beginning to brown to top, about 15 minutes.
