"I added garlic powder, onion salt and paprika on the chicken for some extra flavor. The chicken was very moist and vegetables delectable!"

"The veggies were delicious, but the chicken was sort of blah. It will go great in dishes made from leftovers, though! Still, it was easy and cheap, a big win in my book."

"Very good, I added about an inch of water to the bottom so veggies would not dry out. This was very good supper, served w/ (TOH recipe), cornbread dressing."

"Delicious! My chicken was a bit larger, 4.5 lbs...therefore I cooked it about 20 minutes longer and added a little more to the butter and tyme mixture. Spinkled paprika , garlic and onion powder over the chicken which added a nice subtle kick. I will be making this recipe again!"
