This was very good. Even my kids liked it! The only thing I did differently was cover it with foil the last 30 minutes so that it stayed juicy. Delicious!

This was pretty good. I liked the flavor of the marinade on the chicken, but didn't care for how the potatoes came out. If I use this recipe again in the future, I would skip the potatoes, stuff the onion inside the chicken's cavity, and just baste the bird with the marinade.

I cooked this for my boyfriend's family for Christmas dinner. I made a minor adjustment by taking the potatoes away from the recipe, since I was already making mash potatoes. I also used the remaining soy sauce mixture and onions to make the gravy which was absolutely scrumptious!

This was super easy and smelled wonderful while roasting. Only mistake I made is I forgot to stir the potatoes and onions for the first hour, but remeberd for the last 30 minutes and they turned out perfect. Will be making again for sure.

This was SO good! It tasted similar to a rotisserie chicken. I made it for a Mother's Day dinner and everyone loved it!! I didn't change a thing about the recipe, except I made mashed potatoes on the side instead. The drippings from this would make an excellent gravy. You could even use the marinade on chicken pieces- like boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Great recipe!

Excellent recipe! I think this is the best roast chicken I've ever made. Great gravy too. Didn't change a thing.

Very good. Made the recipe w/o the potatoes and onions because my family prefers baked potatoes. The chicken was very tender and juicy, and the marinade was delicious. Will Definitely make again. Took another poster's suggestion and covered the chicken with foil for the last 30 minutes. perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Easy to make and comes out moist and delicious. Used a 4 lb bird - free range, vegetarian chicken. Used 6 potatoes. Just add a vegetable and dinner is done. Will make again.
