This hearty side dish will bring good taste and a dash of holiday color to any table, promises Mary Bauer in Wichita, Kansas. “It’s great with almost any entree.”
TIP: Adding a cup of leftover diced chicken to the vegetables makes this a quick lunch or meal-in-itself, suggests Mary.
People think I fussed when I serve these packets. Individual aluminum foil pouches hold the juices in during baking to keep the herbed chicken moist moist and tender. It saves time and makes clean up a breeze.—Edna Shaffer, Beulah, Michigan
Diane Hixon of Niceville, Florida uses garlic and Italian seasoning to dress up green beans straight from the garden. "This fast flavorful side dish is frequently on the menu for special occasions," she relates.
"For years, my mother has stuffed a holiday turkey with this moist dressing," comments Kathi Graham of Naperville, Illinois. "Now I do the same thing. Its special flavor nicely compliments the tender, juicy slices of oven-roasted turkey."
"When a friend and I decided to grow zucchini, we had no idea what the results would be," details Rose LaCore of Elizabeth, Minnesota. "We made everything we could think of to use up our crop. This recipe, with its refreshing flavor, found favor with our families."
I dressed up a package of stuffing mix with pork sausage, mushrooms, celery and onion to make this stuffing. It impressed my in-laws at a family gathering and has since become a popular side dish with my husband and children.
A dear friend shared this recipe with me years ago. My family enjoys it with meat dishes as a substitute for potatoes. It’s great to take to a potluck for a dish to pass, but be prepared to also pass along the recipe!
