Ingredients

    • Main-Dish Turkey Stuffing
    • 8 ounces skinless, boneless turkey breast tenderloin, cut into bite-size pieces
    • ⅓ cup chopped celery
    • ¼ cup chopped onion
    • ¼ cup chopped carrot
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • 1 tablespoon light butter with canola oil
    • 1½ teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
    • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or ¼ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or ⅛ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • ¼ teaspoon poultry seasoning
    • ⅛ teaspoon ground pepper
    • 1½ cups dried reduced-calorie whole-wheat bread cubes
    • ⅓ to ½ cup unsalted chicken stock
    • Herbed Gravy
    • 2 teaspoons light butter with canola oil
    • 1 tablespoon flour
    • ½ cup unsalted chicken stock
    • ½ teaspoon chopped fresh oregano or ⅛ teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    • ¼ teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or dash dried thyme, crushed

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2 Prepare turkey stuffing: Cook turkey, celery, onion, carrot and garlic in a medium skillet in 1 tablespoon hot butter over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes or until turkey is cooked through and vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in parsley, oregano, thyme, poultry seasoning and pepper.
  • 3 Combine turkey mixture and bread cubes in a medium bowl. Drizzle with enough chicken stock to moisten, tossing lightly to combine. Divide mixture between two 12-ounce individual casserole dishes.
  • 4 Bake, covered with foil, about 20 minutes or until heated through.
  • 5 Meanwhile, prepare gravy: Melt 2 teaspoons butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour; cook and stir about 3 minutes or until flour begins to brown. Slowly whisk in chicken stock. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in oregano and thyme. Serve with turkey stuffing.
