This was yummmy. The browned skin really made it. Would have liked a little more sauce as had 3 different vegetables with it. Really thought this would have been boring but was surprised how nice it was. Simple and quick too. Thanks

I really liked this recipe. I just wish it made more of the juice. Maybe because I made mashed potatoes and put the juice on them too. Another wonderful and easy recipe by Chef John. Next time I will serve this with a salad on the side and keep all the juice for the chicken like it shows on the video.
