I finally tried this recipe this past Christmas. It came out great! I couldn't find wild rice so I substituted with a rice medley mix. The goose was tasty and so was the stuffing. I will probably try it again next Christmas...

We thoroughly enjoyed this stuffing - in a chicken not a goose. I'm not at all sure that I can recall ever having eaten goose but when I think of goose I continue to be haunted by my brother's experience on picking up his Christmas goose in England and being told that the goose he was buying was "Emily"; and that she'd always been "such a very nice little goose"... knowledge which, I gather, had rather detracted from their enjoyment in eating of Emily. So I really didn't want to know the chicken's name! Anyway, my focus was the stuffing. I was drawn to this recipe by the sheer yummy-sounding nature of the ingredients and made the full quota of the stuffing though it was clearly going to be more than one medium-sized free-range chicken could accommodate. Just loved the wild rice, orange zest, chestnuts and herbs in this - and bacon is always a great addition to stuffings. I also added a few drops of orange juice. Perhaps it was the act of a culinary philistine, but I did add one chopped leek and 4 cloves of minced garlic to the pan in step 6, then because I felt something was needed to bind the ingredients, I added an egg. What didn't fit into the chicken, I placed in an ovenproof dish and cooked separately. FABULOUS STUFFING: just loved it. and could happily eat it on its own by the spoonful. Moist and flavoursome and great textual variation : FANTASTIC. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
