Stove Top Chestnut Stuffing

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sandyg61

I grew up eating my aunt's chestnut stuffing every Thanksgiving. I couldn't find a recipe that came out like hers so I created my own using StoveTop stuffing mix. You can roast and peel your own chestnuts or, they can be purchased already roasted and peeled at many oriental markets or in a jar at some supermarkets.

We loved this recipe. I made it for a Thanksgiving dinner and it was the winner of the stuffings.<br/>I used the whole wheat Stove-Top and did not use the mushrooms(DH is a hater). After the stuffing was done, I put in a greased 13 x 9 pan and baked it at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. I also used chestnuts in a pouch from an Asian food market.
