    Cooked this tonight, and will do so again. Used both (onion soup and Catalina dressing) links you provided, too. Simple and delicious!
    I had saved the recipe when I initially read it and worked from that, not knowing you'd lengthened the time, (which I found to be required as well) and where the (original) recipe called for the meat to be 'turned' I wasn't sure if rotating, or turning over was required? But now that I look at the revised I see you added covering for the first leg of cooking time which too, would eliminate the need to turn during the cooking. No probs though, it all worked out fine.
    Thanks again for providing these recipes, and I'll say it again, every recipe of yours I've tried deserves a grade, "A"!
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!

      I found the recipe in a notebook from way back and posted before I had not cooked it in years. Made jasmine rice and French cut green beans. I saved the juices, put them in the freezer and later skimmed the fat. Poured it over the chicken and rice. Yum!

      Thanks for your kind words.

      My kid and I love baked and roasted chicken. This recipe is an easy one to do it seems. I could make it soon.

        I made this for the first time the other day. Just delicious with buttered Jasmine rice and cilantro. Would go well with glazed carrots or sautéed squash.
