    I really liked this recipe a lot. I a used boneless/skinless chicken breast and cut it into 3 pieces. I decreased the baking time to 35 minutes because I didn't want my chicken to dry out. I added some asparagus spears during the last ten minutes of cooking, and everything turned out great. - 3/11/12

  • This was a definite keeper. I did overcook it. (I was watching Twilight Zone). But the flavor was wonderful. I liked having the potatoes with it in one pan. Yum!!! - 3/10/13

  • Very good recipe. I used leg quarters instead of a whole cut up chicken. I also used bottled lemon juice in place of the fresh lemons because I didn't have any. Even my four and three year old enjoyed it and they are very picky. Never knew healthy eating could taste so good! - 2/18/13

  • Why is the Sodium: 1,191.4 mg? If I take out the salt what else would be contributing to the Sodium Count if anything? - 9/28/12

    Reply from ISA858 (9/28/12)
    Thanks for checking on the sodium. The sodium comes from 2 tsp salt. You don't have to add the salt at all if you want low sodium or just a portion of the salt. Just lots of salt and pepper gives a tast roasted chicken.

  • I don't know what happened, but the chicken was not pretty... I used boneless skinless chicken breast and cut it into about 1-2 oz chunks. I cut the lemons in wedges and roasted everything. The chicken was dry as a bone, couldn't cut it. Flavor seemed good... - 1/24/12

  • Even my picky daughter who doesn't seem to like chicken at this one! Added a couple of quartered onions too as we love onions here. May add some veggies like peppers or broccoli next time - 4/2/11

    I made mine with leg quarters then removed the skin before eating so my calorie count was a litter higher. This recipe is so yummy!! Also, in the last ten minutes of roasting, I put a bunch of asparagus on top of everything so that I had some greens with my dinner! - 7/14/10
