"Loved this Chicken! I used way too much amaretto and basted throughout the baking process. It was a little too sweet and candied at first but then I remmebered the little lemon in his butt and squeeze..." See mored that on the meat and the tartness really set off the sweet flavor. I would recommend roasting a whole lemon. I also rubbed the skin with garlic and salt. "
"This was really good and alot of taste for a low sodium diet. I changed very little. I added chopped fresh Rosemary to the butter and spread this paste under the skin along with rubbing it on the outs..." See moreide of the skin. To the drippings I added no sodium chicken granulated flavoring (it's like boulion with out all the salt, found in any grocery store)reduced the drippings then added some flour to thicken. You don't have to be on a low sodium diet to like this dish."
