MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 7, 2015

"Followed the instructions and it was nothing great.. Something is missing inthis recipe.. Very colourful but disappointing as far as flavor.. Will not be making again??"

MY REVIEW

"I was surprised how flavorful the chicken was with such simple seasoning. Found that 60 minutes wasn't quite long enough to cook the chicken quarters all the way through. The leftovers reheated well. It looks pretty in the casserole, too! Definitely making again, but adding more spinach."

"I made this for dinner this evening, and it was delicious and so easy. My husband loved it. Instead of chicken quarters, I used just the legs, and they were nicely browned and crispy. Will definitely make it again."

"Delicious recipe and very easy to prepare. I had to extend the cooking time another 30 minutes and I mixed the spinach, onions and garlic with the thyme and oil before I put it in the pan."
