Freezer Method - Your slow cooker stuffing will most likely lack a little moisture once it is defrosted. This is normal. The bread(s) have soaked up all the juices.
If you see it is a bit dry, just add a bit more chicken broth. Add about a 1/4 cup at a time until it is moist and looks like it did when you froze it. You can also add a bit more melted butter if you would like it to be extra creamy.
