Hellmann's Turkey and Stuffing Dijon Recipe [$100 Giveaway]


Hellmann’s® is on a mission to help moms re-think main dish meals and leftovers by offering easy and delicious recipes that are great for the busy holiday season. I was in high school before I had mayonnaise for the first time, and I have been making up for it ever since. Trying out a recipe for Turkey and Stuffing Dijon using Hellmann’s® mayonnaise was right up my alley.


Besides being delicious, this recipe was easy to make and quick. I used one bowl, one pot, and one baking dish. Two of the three dishes were clean before dinner was even on the table. It is perfect for a night when you don't have a lot of time, but still want to put a great dinner on the table for your family.

I made the recipe with both turkey and chicken and chose the apricot preserves. My family all agreed that the turkey was our favorite, but that might have something to do with the stuffing. Turkey just feels right with stuffing. The combination of the stuffing and the apricot Dijon sauce was fabulous too. Honestly, a turkey and stuffing recipe like this will make you wonder why you spend 12 hours in the kitchen cooking a turkey and washing every dish you own for Thanksgiving dinner. The Hellmann’s® made the turkey juicy and crispy and delicious!


6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 35 minutes
1/2 cup Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1/3 cup apricot or peach preserves
1 package (7 oz.) seasoned cube stuffing mix (about 3-1/2 cups)
1-1/2 cups hot water
6 boneless, skinless turkey cutlets or thin-cut chicken breast halves (about 1-3/4 lbs.)
Preheat oven to 400¡.
Spray 13 x 9-inch baking pan with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine Hellmann’s® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, mustard and preserves in small bowl; set aside.
Combine stuffing mix and hot water until moistened in large bowl; let stand 2 minutes.
Spoon stuffing into pan in 6 mounds. Top each mound with turkey, then evenly top with mustard sauce.
Bake covered 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
Remove cover and bake an additional 5 minutes.

Best way to keep calm for the holiday season is to plan ahead. Plan for a menu that can be made ahead certainly helps.

Well this year is easy...we have a 6 week live in grand daughter and a tiny little preemature grandson, born not two weeks later. JUST like holding a baby used to calm me *with my 6, when it gets to be all too much...just snuggle with a sweet little angel and you forget what the rest of the world and their craziness is doing. It all started with a wonderful baby... and still...

thanks!

I like trying to make everything magical for everyone around me and doing that can be a little stressful. So, I try to MAKE myself stop and rest.
I don't plan stuff on certain days (Sunday works) just so my whole family can chill out and lay around guilt free relaxing!
It really does help to have NOTHING ELSE TO DO!!

I tell myself I'm not Martha Stewart and it doesn't need to come out like a Normal Rockwell painting. I don't stress over things, or fall victim to the hype.

angie lilly said...

Honestly, if I am around a lot of family and feel panicky, I will go to the bathroom for a bit and splash some cool water on my face and just sit there and chill. Count to 10, deep breaths, do some neck stretches. Its amazing how much better I feel after about 5 mins away.
