Reviews for Garlic-Roasted Chicken and Potatoes
"easy and tasty!"
"This got mixed reviews in our house. Hubby and I thought the potatoes were out of this world...our 3 kids didn't like the mild sweetness of them. But we all agreed the chicken itself was very bland. It didn't seem to pick up any of the garlic or maple flavors."
"I halved this recipe and made it with skinless thighs, 1/2 tsp? granulated garlic, and white potates. It was delicious, I especially liked the way the potatoes were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside."
"This was ok, nothing special. I'm not sorry I made it and no one had trouble eating it, but no one in my family loved it either. It certainly was easy though."
"The whole family really liked this. I tossed the mixture halfway through the initial cooking time. Also poured maple syrup mixture over entire dish, turned out great. Next time I will use skinless chicken to reduce the fat content."
"A good recipe except i didn't use all the garlic it called for. Will try again sometime but i will use regular pancake syrup instead of the maple and will use either boneless skinless thighs/breasts."
"Was very good, used white potatoes thats what I had on hand. I also used two heads of garlic. Would make again"
"Fantastic and extremely easy. I just spiced it up a little with some additional seasonings and it was a hit!"
"My husband loved it! I will make it again"
