"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."
