Lemon herb stuffing with
with mushrooms, celery, onions,
and lots of chopped fresh parsley.
I usually double this recipe so that I have lots
for Thanksgiving dinner and can put several
bags in the freezer for roast chicken dinners
later in the year.
I use the herbed cubed stuffing in a bag.
Chop all the vegetables and begin adding them to
the pan with hot butter starting with the
onions and celery then adding
the sliced mushrooms. Saute for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the seasonings.
Add the stuffing and chicken broth.
Toss well and add a good squeeze of lemon juice.
Lots of chopped fresh parsley is a must.
Toss well and you're ready to stuff your bird
or refrigerate until needed.
I love having a few of these bags of stuffing in
the freezer. They turn a roast chicken
into the perfect Sunday dinner.
