"This was an old 'Stove Top Stuffing' recipe. But, it has many variations over the years. This could not be easier; and, it is done in literally 15 minutes. Add a small salad; and, dinner is on the table. Now, leftover turkey would obviously be my first choice; however, cooked rotisserie chicken would be perfect for this. This is not fancy; but, it is just a good 'stick to your ribs' dish."

Step 1

Note: Leftover turkey works great; but, chicken is just as good in this dish. Also, I don't peel my apples; personal preference. I take the easy way for this dish. And kale; it optional; but, one time, I had some kale - so I added it. It was delicious.

Step 2

Base ... In a large deep non-stick pan; add the cider, broth, marsala wine, apples, cranberries, shallots, and a pinch of nutmeg. Bring to a light boil; then, reduce to medium low heat. Cook 5 minutes covered, just until the apples are slightly tender.

Step 3

Chicken and Stuffing ... Add the chicken and stuffing mix (optional kale); and, stir until combined. Stir, season with salt and pepper if needed; then, cover and cook another 3-4 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed and, the chicken is heated through.

Step 4

Finish, Serve, and ENJOY! ... Top with the pecans and scallions. Serve family style; and, dinner is served.
