Lemon-Herb Stuffing

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.
