Book Club Herb Roasted Chicken and Vegetables Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

I made this as the main dish when hosting my women's group holiday meal. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used chicken pieces (bone in, skin on for moister chicken) and omitted the potatoes. I doubled the recipe, as I was feeding 10 people. The result was pretty disappointing. When the chicken cooks it releases its fats and they collect in the bottom of the pan. Had I had the potatoes in there, they might have absorbed some of the grease. As it was, I scooped the veggies in there (as directed by the recipe) and immediately regretted it, so I scooped them out and continued to keep them separate. Even so, they were not crispy and delicious, but rather too oily. We love roasted veggies, but I usually spread them out on a cookie sheet so they can crisp up. Maybe if I had not doubled the recipe, it would have worked better? I would say I would try again for just us, but when I served the leftovers (nobody went back for seconds) to my husband later, his comment was, "Don't bother to make this again." What a shame. It looked delicious.

Changed up this recipe a lot due to the fact that I wanted something healthy with broccoli, chicken and potatoes and most other recipes were soup, and that wasn't what I wanted. Plus I had limited ingredients since this was a last minute meal and I didn't want to go to the store, nor did I want to take all the extra steps, so I threw everything together and cooked all at once. It turned out great!I I used only 1/2 the olive oil, but all the spices, juice and garlic, which I added to the mixture for marinading, along with a tablespoon of soy sauce, just to spice it up a bit. I marinaded 2 chicken breasts and one onion for a little over an hour. I then put all the other ingredients (sliced up regular potatoes, one onion and broccoli along with the marinated chicken (which I then chopped into 1 X 2" pieces) and onion, into a glass baking dish covered with tin foil and put it on our smoker set at 350 for 35 minutes (I didn't want to use the oven since it's so hot outside). It turned out great, although the chicken was a bit overcooked, so I could have probably put it in for 10 minutes less. My husband and I both loved it and would make it again!

I made this last night. I changed a few of the vegetables but I don't think that makes a difference. It was great. I loved the asparagus and broccoli roasted with the seasoning. It was awesome. I could just eat that! The chicken was great too. I only marinated for a few hours- so maybe more would have been better, but still good!

We had a very nice dinner tonight. I was attracted to this recipe because of the name----I LOVE books! I am not really proficient at cutting up my own chicken, but I did the best I could. I followed the recipe pretty well---didn't use fingerlings but rather diced red potato. And I didn't use all the vegetables called for because this was just for two of us. Otherwise, I cut up an organic Costco chicken and marinated it for four hours. I think I should have used more salt and pepper, but somehow I didn't see that until the chicken was ready to bake. I thought the marinade could have used some. I also think that when I make it again I'll use less olive oil and cut up the garlic to add to the chicken while marinating it. So there are a few changes necessary for my taste, but this was really a good idea. I will use this again! Thank you so much, Risa! I'll look forward to our leftovers!
