Recipe by PalatablePastime

Great for parties and pot-lucks. These can easily be made in advance and gently reheated before serving.

This is a great recipe - very nice combination of unique flavors. Don't skimp on the wtaer chestnuts - they add nice texture. I made it by the book, so no suggestions needed for improvement. I am going to try it in the form of mini-meat loaves for a dinner entree.
