"It was a little light on the garlic so I added a heaping tbl of minced garlic on the next batch. I baked @ 375 degrees, skin side up for 40 min and under the broiler for 5-7 min. Really good!"

"Not sure why we didn't like this. We could hardly taste the garlic. Will stick to our regular chicken recipe."

"This was super good!!! My whole family loved it and this will definitely be a monthly meal. I served with parmesan noodles. Not the most healthy meal but hat's okay once in a while."
