      We really enjoyed this and I loved the fact that is a full meal that you cook all at once (even though it is not all in the same pan). The sauce and chicken took longer than I expected to cook, so next time I will start on step 6 as soon as the potatoes are in the oven and will let the chicken poach/rest for 20 minutes. Also, I decided to make 2 lb of potatoes (and doubled the other ingredients used in step 2). That seemed to be the right amount, but 1 lb might still be fine if I am serving dessert too. Next time I will use a 9 X 13 pan instead of my roasting pan which is huge. Everyone loved the flavor of this.

      Loved the red potatoes and asparagus, and in fact, I have added it as it's own recipe with 4 WW points on Recipezaar. The technique for the chicken produced a really moist breast, but the overall flavor of the balsalmic was too sharp and plain. (It also makes a mess when it's cooking down if you're not careful!) Mix it with some other herbs or mushrooms, and hopefully it'll be better than what I had!
