i've made this recipe twice for my homeboys, and they liked it.some of the other reviews mentioned that the meat was pretty bland, so i brined it for 2hours before baking it. I found the brine recipe on this site, but i don't remember what it's call. Basically about 8cups water, 1cup kosher salt, a whole orange and lemon,cut and juiced,4 bay leaves, about 2tbsp sugar, handful of chopped garlic, a handful of dried thyme and a whole sliced onion. dump ur chicken in there at room temp for 2 hours and follow the recipe.
the second time i bake the chicken, i used 1/2 tsp olive oil instead, cos 2tbsp is really too much. Chicken breasts -30min, thighs with skin on (yummilicious)-45mins, i also tucked the lemon wedges under the skin while bakin and removed them just before serving. Thanks for sharing!!
