This fruit rice stuffing accompanies roast duck as part of our traditional New Year's Day dinner. It's also an attractive side dish to serve alongside Cornish game hens and chicken. —Katrina Forar, Lakewood, Colorado

"This rice dish is a nice complement to the Glazed Cornish hens as pictured. I used diced dried mango and it was received by ALL at Easter dinner!"

"This stuffing recipe is a really nice complement to orange glazed roast duck. I think it would also pair nicely with any other roasted poultry. My son even tried it, and he is very picky. I'm planning on making this to accompany a roast turkey breast at my next family gathering."
