"I've been making this recipe for a few years now, I absolutely love it! I look forward to winter, this is such of comforting dish. I like to roast potatoes with it and drizzle them with the yummy sauce."

"I loved it! I baked it with carrots in the juices, and some peas on the side. Though, I used breasts, and I will definitely use thighs next time because I'd forgotten that chicken breasts always came out sort of dry. But I will definitely make this again, and I recommend using some baby carrots around the chicken to bake in the sauce."

"Really good! I really like the flavor but I think next time I would add a bit of garlic like some other reviews said."

"We have made this twice, both times using cut up pieces of a boneless, skinless chicken breast and cutting the recipe in 1/6ths. We cook it in a bread pan and only for about 25 minutes, or until the middle of the thickest part of the breast piece is no longer pink. This makes enough to serve 2 people who don't like a lot of meat with dinner.

Flavors are wonderful and it makes a nice "pop" to some of the blander side dishes."

"When I read all the reviews I was so pumped for this recipe! However, when I bit into it I was a TAD disappointed. It didn't have as much flavor as I would have expected. I always have a hard time with baked, bone-in chicken. I always want a ton of flavor which is hard to achieve! LOL

BUT, this was the best recipe I've had for chicken quarters so far. It was tasty, moist, and the skin tasted wonderful. The flavor wasn't as intense as I would have liked, but what was there was excellent!"

"My teenage boys both ask for this recipe often. It's fast, easy, and always turns out great. We use olive oil instead of the butter to lighten it up."
