Excellent!!! Served with a side of broccoli in cheese sauce. Only prepared two hens, served the rest of the stuffing the next day with Balsamic Glazed Pork Steaks. Excellent!!!

The stuffing was okay...a bit too sweet for our tastes though. I'll stick with the more savory flavors of traditional stuffing next time--but I'm going to keep the brown rice instead of the bread cubes. Thanks!

Very very good!!! My husband and I have no kids so I only prepared 2 tonight. In 2 days I'll prepare rest for company. I was pleasantly surprised. I tasted the stuffing before I stuffed and hated it.. Im glad I let it cook in the hen. It was delicious! Served with a side of brussel sprouts
