This stuffing, with its pleasant herb flavor, is a nice change of pace from traditional bread stuffing. The crunch comes from sunflower kernels. (Leftovers would be great in the Chicken Jambalaya recipe above.)
I found a recipe in a local newspaper back in the 60's for duckling with fruit sauce. One duck wouldn't yield the number of servings I needed so I reworked the recipe to make it with a big meaty roasting chicken or capon. It's been a favorite holiday dish ever since. A small 9- to 11-pound turkey may be substituted for chicken—I've used both. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
This garlic-kissed chicken is delicious, plain or fancy. It's an elegant entree for guests-and my husband and I love its leftovers in rice casseroles and hot, open-face sandwiches. —Sheri Sidwell, Alton, Illinois
When you want an impressive centerpiece for Sunday dinner or a special-occasion meal, you can't go wrong with this golden chicken from our Test Kitchen. The moist, tender meat is enhanced with a hint of orange, savory and thyme.
