Pairing poultry with pears brought applause from my husband and four growing children. Simple enough for everyday meals and ideal for company, this dish is a year-round standout. We enjoy it with boiled potatoes. -Andrea Lunsford, Spokane, Washington

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 18, 2011

My husband and two small sons loved this! I skipped the chives and used turkey bacon. I was almost out of chicken broth, so used half apple cider instead.
