I made this substituting chopped pecans for the almonds. I also didn't have any dried minced onion so I just omitted it. The apple, pecan, bleu cheese mix was good enough to eat on its own! I cooked the chicken on 400 and left it in for 28 minutes. It was a bit dry. I would suggest covering the pan with foil at least halfway through cooking, if not the whole time. Overall this was a great mix of ingredients and very good. I'm seriously thinking of making the stuffing as a cold salad. So good!
