MY REVIEW

This was tasty and very easy. It wasn't blow your mind different so I gave it 4 stars! But very good...after rubbing on the herb mixture I put it in the fridge for 2 hours, and it made the flavour more intense. Filled the house with a very nice smell while baking, not overwhelming!!! Would definitely make this again because it is very versatile and would go with any side dishes.
