If you prefer to use this as a Dressing and not a Stuffing you can absolutely do that. I recommend using a 9X9 buttered baking dish or to be really festive a non stick bundt pan! Because this is not cooking inside the Turkey it needs some additional moisture. Stir in the extra 1/2 cup chicken stock and top with cubed butter. Cover with foil and bake at 350F for about 25-30 minutes until heated through. Serve!
