Recipe: Stuffing with cranberries

Recipe: Stuffing with cranberries

This recipe calls for baking the stuffing separately from the turkey or chicken, which cuts down on fat and calories.

Stuffing is usually baked within a turkey or chicken. This version bakes the stuffing separately, saving calories and fat. If you prefer extra-moist stuffing, add more chicken broth or water.


Directions

Heat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large skillet, heat the chicken broth over medium heat. Add the celery and onion and saute until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, parsley, tarragon, paprika, nutmeg, cranberries, water chestnuts and chopped apples. Add the onion and celery mixture. Stir to mix evenly.

Spoon stuffing into the prepared baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes. Serve immediately.


Ingredients
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup chopped celery
