Mandarin Orange Cranberry Pecan Stuffing

A Florida Sunshine treat!  Mandarin Cranberry Pecan Stuffing!  A citrus side of wonderful flavors that are a great addition to your Turkey or Poultry dinner~


1 large can mandarin oranges drain out half the juice out
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pecans
2 tablespoons chopped onions
1 tablespoon chopped celery
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
6 cups herb flavored croutons
2 cups chicken broth (and more if it dries out)

Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Melt butter in a large skillet. Add the onion, celery and garlic saute for 4 minutes. Stir in the rest of the juice and oranges, seasonings, pecans, cranberries and mix well.  Place croutons in a large baking dish. Pour chicken broth and orange mixture over the croutons. Place in oven for 20  minutes covered, then uncover and bake 15 minutes more. If you make this ahead of time and it dries out add more chicken broth before reheating.

I'll bet this gives dressing a lighter touch and the citrus should go well with the turkey.
