From The Southern Living Cookbook. The allspice and orange zest gives this an unusual flavor, but I cut WAY back on the orange zest, adding maybe about 1 tsp. Also I used olive oil instead of butter. At serving time, I added cornstarch to the liquid in the pan and made a gravy to serve on the side.
