    Dreamgoddess's Note:

    When I saw this recipe in the April 2006 issue of Southern Living, I simply had to try it. It looks like you spent a lot of time preparing it, but the recipe actually cooks up very quickly. Serve with potatoes or rice and a salad...voila, dinner is ready in about 40 minutes.

      Wonderful spice rub! I was cooking for one, so I mixed up a half recipe of the spice mix and used it to season a single bone in chicken breast, then cooked as directed. The meat was flavorful and juicy, the skin was crispy- just perfect! I used the butter and lemonjuice to saute some cooked gnocchi and baby squash, making a complete meal. Definately will make this again. Edit- I made this again using halved cornish game hens. I covered the hens with the spice rub 24 hours ahead, then before broiling, I basted with a little of the lemon-butter sauce. The remaining sauce I drizzled over the finished chicken on the serving platter. This was elegant enough for company, but really simple to do.

      I made this for *Zaar World Tour III* - Very delicious and moist chicken, I used chicken thighs on the bone with skin and it was perfect. I didn't change a thing and followed the recipe as written. The spice on the chicken was subtle and the 'lemon butter sauce' was simple but mouth watering - we all licked our fingers. Thank you Dreamgoddess (aka Naughty But Nice Gang Captian)

      VERY flavorful recipe. Definitely not low-fat - whoops! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and guessed the cooking time, so ours came out a bit more well-done than I like, but that was my fault. DH and I both really liked this recipe! I might try squeezing lemon juice over it next time and omitting (or perhaps reducing) the butter so I don't feel guilty about eating this more often. :)
