Oh my! Served this Xmas eve rather than traditional turkey and it was DIVINE! I followed the recipe pretty closely (OK, a little heavy on the port but...) and got tons of compliments. Since I had a sort of vegetarian at the table, I set some stuffing aside for her and she devoured it. Will definitely make this again

I halved this recipe and made it for my Thanksgiving (and following night) dinner for 1. I already had apricot preserves in the fridge so used that, dried apricots, and a sweet white wine. I also made green bean casserole and pumpkin cheesecake. It really was delicous and allowed me to have a real thanksgiving dinner.

Made these for Thanksgiving several years ago and they were FANTASTIC! Because of travel arrangements, I needed something that didn't take hours and hours to prepare for a smaller crowd and still had that "ooh-aah" presentation. The glaze gave these birds a beautiful appearance and wonderful flavor. If you want to impress guests but don't want to spend all day in the kitchen, give this a try!
