    Bergy's Note:

    ------This is a gourmet do ahead dinner all in one dish. All the work is in the AM, pop it in the oven 45 minutes before dinner and wait for the raves. Your choice of vegetables may vary. I like to work in a green vegetable like peas, green beans or broccoli - they do not require any precooking just pop them into the baking dish with the other partially cooked vegetables and the chicken when you are 45 minutes away from dinner!------I have changed the chicken to 4 breasts from one chicken quartered as originally posted

      Love the orange slice idea! Updating my rating since the recipe has been updated; it will fit much better in the pan with breasts instead of a whole chicken.

      This recipe was quite good. I am a citrus fan (lemons, Limes , and Oranges; I'm not found of grapefruit. The directions were easy to follow (I might give you a suggestion to change the onions to peeled and quartered instead of cleaned (unless you are just washing them and keeping the peel on, hovever I don't think that was your intention) I make errors often when I write out recipes. Other than that, I left out the parsnips (I personally just don't like them) and I added an extra 1/2 orange juice, and an extra pinch of cinnamon.) These however are just my personal tastes, and to be honest I probably change something on 95% of the recipes I make. (Even ones from the professionals) so don't take any of my changes personally.
