    Pianolady's Note:

    If I could choose anything I wanted to do, it would be to have a chestnut farm. This is an absolutely awesome recipe -- and every time I make it, the bowl is picked half empty by everyone before I even get it into the oven. I posted my cornbread recipe "Perfect Cornbread" #96862, specifically for inclusion in this recipe. This was originally posted in Gourmet Magazine. It is not a quick recipe, but it is not difficult to make and is WELL worth the effort! Preparation time does not include making the cornbread recipe.

      I have used this Recipe which I found on Food Network with the Courtesy of Gourmet Magazine. And I have used the Chestnuts once from a jar, to which they were not pleased. So, I just omit the Chestnuts now. I am not experienced enough to really use the Chestnuts and I find that the recipe is just as good.
