Merwin's Shrimp Gumbo
I have made this recipe twice. The first time I tried a baked roux (without oil) & did not like it so I made it again tonight, following the directions. While I think the general recipe okay, I have a couple of problems with it. First - I made my roux in an enameled cast iron pan and after 45 minutes it had barely changed color. After reading through some other recipes I turned up the heat to medium & stirred constantly until it reached the right color. This worked better for me. The bigger problem was that the flavor was a bit wimpy. I ended up adding 2 packs of Trader Joe's low sodium chicken broth concentrate and 3 tsp of cajun spice with 1 tsp of salt. In the end we liked it. I would make it again with these changes...

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Like so many reviewers have said, this is hands down the best chicken I have made in my life! It is crazy delicious, unbelievably moist and tender. We used the leftovers for the best chicken sandwiches in the days afterwards. One tip I would mention - the marinading step is essential... people that have skipped it have drier birds... when the chicken marinades, the rub turns to a paste which makes a crust on the chicken while it bakes. I am trying this recipe tomorrow with chicken breasts instead of the whole chicken, trying to be a little bit healthier. I have definitely added this to our regular menu. Yum, yum, yum!!
