"Great meal to warm the house and welcome fall with the smells and flavors of the season! Chicken roasts with butternut squash, apple cider, and garlic. Even the kids will love the sweet fall flavor of the chicken and vegetables! Yields 2 large servings. As this dish cools on the table, the liquid and vegetables become wonderfully syrupy!" — STACIE78

This recipe needs changes to come out good. The chicken was done before the potatoes. I had to set the chicken aside for 20 minutes while the veggies finished cooking. Also there was too much liquid. I loved the seasonings on the veggies but the chicken was plain. If I were to try again I might just cook the vegetable portion with less liquid and do chicken in a skillet with more seasoning.
We really enjoyed the mix of vegetables in this and the flavor was wonderful. Hubby went back for seconds on the vegetables which he rarely does. This smells so good cooking. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and next time I will season them with more than salt and pepper. I didn't even have a chance to take a picture of this as it had our mouths watering. LOL!
This smelled amazing cooking but tasted very bland. After reading other reviews I used less liquid and seasoned the chicken, but it just wasn't enough to fit our tastes.
Very disappointed. Even having read the comments and made adjustments it was rather tasteless and the sauce was runny.
This was ok. The only thing I changed was that I used sweet potatoes instead of carrots. I don't really like cooked carrots. The ligquid did not become syrupy like the description says and I had to turn on the broiler for an extra 10 minutes because the skin still was not brown after I cook it for 20 min without the foil. The flavor was ok. Could have been better.
