Ingredients

  • 2 cups seasoned stuffing croutons

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the croutons, water and butter. Loosely stuff into hens. Place breast side up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan; tie drumsticks together.

"YUM!!!!! So pretty and they taste as good as they look. The only changes I made was to add some finely chopped onions and celery to the stuffing mix with a pinch of marjoram and sage. Not a lot. The apricot glaze is delectable. These would make a lovely anniversary dinner meal."
