Although this is a type of stuffing I generally associate more with Christmas, I do like to share it with you before Thanksgiving in case you want to have it with your turkey. The chestnuts add a great flavor and it will go perfectly well with poultry such as turkey, chicken, or goose in addition to things like pork and even beef.
