  • Good
    This was okay, but not spectacular. I followed the recipe exactly and my family that loves chicken was not too impressed but they ate it. I've done this in the oven with lemons and oranges and it was much better. Was an excellent idea and would like to make some improvements to make it less bland! - 3/1/10

  • Incredible!
    This was delicious! We came home from a cold wet hike and the house smelled amazing. I also served it with half a baked sweet potato and boyfriend (who is not a fan of bird) said, "you can do that again", which is boyfriend-ese for, that was yummy! - 2/7/10

    It is simple and easy to make and taste wonderful! I planned on a baked sweet potato with it. A great meal especially after a long day at work and when it's cold outside. Try it!!!!! - 1/17/10
