Sauerkraut Stuffing Recipe

Sauerkraut Stuffing Recipe

When my husband and I were married, I didn't know how to boil water. Now, many years later, there are 890 cookbooks and counting in my collection—and we are parents of five grown children and grandparents of eight!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 2 hours YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup shredded uncooked potatoes
  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 can (14 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley or 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute the potatoes and onion in butter until onion is tender (potatoes will still be firm). Remove from the heat. Stir in the sauerkraut, parsley and seasonings.
  • 2. Stuff chicken cavity; place on a rack in roasting pan. Roast, uncovered, at 375° for 2 hours or until chicken is tender and juices run clear. Remove to a serving platter and keep warm.
