This sounds delightful and will be on the top of my list to make ASP. The mild licorice flavor would go well with a roasting chicken. Either stuff the bird with it or serve it as a side dish A short cut is to use 2 packages of stuffing mix, follow the package instructions then omit the bread & herbs from this recipe.
