    Marie's Note:

    You will not believe the flavor of this chicken. Make a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, herbs and lemon juice and rub it under the skin of the chicken. Then let the oven do the rest of the work. Recipe found on the internet.

      Perfect! We raise our own chickens and I have used this on some of the larger (5 1/2-6 1/2 pounds) roasters. Free range chickens can be tougher than cage raised and larger chickens can be tougher than 3 - 4 pounders. This recipe seems to help tenderize thighs and legs - and it is yummy flavor as well! Thank you for posting this
