Top Review by dgpat

This looks like an awesome, healthy meal, which I saved to do later this week. I couldn't figure out why the calories and fat content was so high, so I went to look at the 'Detailed Nutrional Info' and found that they had based it on 3 WHOLE chickens, not 1 chicken, cut into pieces w/skin and fat removed. This is a MUCH healthier recipe than they are saying and I can't wait to try it with my chicken thighs!!! Thanks for posting!!!
