Nutritional Facts

1 stuffed hen (prepared with reduced-fat butter and reduced-sodium broth) equals 878 calories, 56 g fat (16 g saturated fat), 362 mg cholesterol, 1,066 mg sodium, 25 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 64 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in 1 tablespoon butter until tender. Stir in the stuffing, broth, almonds, parsley, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Spoon about 1 cup stuffing mixture into each hen; tie legs together with kitchen string.
