My mom's tender roasted chicken with potatoes and sage dressing is even more delicious than its aroma while baking. My children enjoy this meal as much as I did when I was young. —Sandra Melnychenko, Grandview, Manitoba

"The chicken was very moist. The potatoes were delicious. I did leave out the celery because my family doesn't like it. I think it did need a little more sage and seasoning and maybe not cook as long."
