  • Added more chicken quarters, used salt, pepper, and garlic on chicken, and cooked potatoes in a seperate pan. Chicken came out VERY tender. I cooked both for 90 minutes @ 350 and neither was dry! - 1/5/13

  • Husband made this with tony's vegetable seasoning and it was very good. Chicken stayed moist and potatoes had good flavor.The only issue I have is with the fattiness of the meat. - 4/9/12

  • This was very good! I used chicken legs and double the amount of chicken but kept the butter amount the same. I was very generous with the parsley and added Mrs. Dash original seasoning. I also had one wheat roll and used the roasted garlic as a spread. - 1/23/12

  • This was good, basic food. Nothing exciting, but I probably will make it again if I'm in a hurry, as it's easy. Maybe next time I need to add more herbs... - 8/22/10

  • Wonderful. My 12 year old son asked for more. The chicken was so moist. The potatoes were awesome. It was so easy to make. It is a new family favorite. It would be great for company. I ususally always get chick quarters, so much cheaper the chicken breast. - 8/18/10
