I guess I let the winning status of this recipe build my anticipation, because frankly, I was disappointed. It was only OK in my opinion, but certainly not worth a million dollars. I thought maybe I did something wrong, so I visited the Pillsbury site to see if I had missed something. And the average of the 100 Pillsbury reviews give this recipe only 2 1/2 stars (out of 5). So I don't think I'm too far off regarding my opinion. As for my specific comments, I think the maple syrup ovepowered the sauce. So If I make this again, I think next time I will probably reduce the amount of syrup to 2 portions (not 3) and focus on the peach preserves for flavoring and thickening up the sauce. And I (and my husband) thought the spinach stuffing smelled and tasted too similar to our regular Thanksgiving stuffing. (Maybe it just us...but it just didn't seem right to be eating Thanksgiving stuffing when it isn't even Thanksgiving!) So I would omit (or at least reduce) the sage and poultry seasoning, and maybe replace it with garlic salt and basil or something else that would flavor it nicley but not have it smell and taste so similar to our Thanksgiving stuffing. But on the positive side....it''s a very easy recipe to make, and you end up with a nice roasted chicken breast and a good side dish. All you have to do is add a buttered dinner roll or sliced garlic bread, and you have a complete meal. And it was a great way to get my kids to eat spinach.
