WOW Bergy!! wonderfull stuffing!! I made the whole recipe for 12!! for a 5 lb chicken!! Stuffed the bird and casseroled the rest, and will freeze it for future use. It is soo good, we will probably use the casserole for a side dish. It was wonderful in the bird, the combination of wild and basmati rices was sooo complimented by the pecans, onions, mushrooms, garlic and herbs with a perfect touch of madeira!! There was chicken left over but not a speck of the stuffing!! Thanks for sharing Bergy!!

I can't even begin to say how wonderful this stuffing is!!! I also made the whole recipe and since it will stuff the turkey and then some, I will have lots for the freezer. Thanks so much, it's definitely worth being in the kitchen for!
