"Very good recipe. Just good flavor! For the person who doesn't know what savory is: it is an herb that has been used for over 2,000 years in Mediterranean cooking. It was brought to Britain by Roman soldiers & now grows in North America. It goes well with egg dishes, pasta & lentils. There is both summer & winter savory; summer is milder. I hope you do some experimenting with this delicious herb."

"@Laura78. You asked about what is dried Savory? Look in the spice section at your super market. McCormick should have a bottle. Hope this information helps you. I also googled Dried Savory to see what it said."

"Nothing to not like here. I used Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing mix for the stuffing. My daughter said it smelled like turkey. You could taste the mustard ever so faintly. Neither part over took the other. It was a nice blend. I give it 5 stars but don't plan to make it again for a while. I am trying lots of new recipes. Not sure how "diet" friendly this one is with the stuffing part. It was just a nice change from the boring chicken we have been eating."
