We really enjoyed this dish. My 6 year old INHALED her dinner and that NEVER happens. She said "You can make this again. It's great!" She just kept going on and on about how much she liked it. I'm telling you, I almost fell off my chair watching her eat this. She's not all that crazy about meat or chicken in general but this was a big hit with her. The gravy was especially good and it was such a simple recipe to do. Thanks, Baby Kato!
This had good flavor and was easy to put together. The lemons gave it a nice twist. I love the flavor of the vegetables, I used zucchini. I used leg quarters and so had to increase my cooking time about 15 minutes due to the thickness. The gravy was a little blander than I like, But that's just personal preference. I added a little white pepper and it was fine.
Great, one-pan dinner! My daughter made this recipe for my Mother's Day meal and we all really enjoyed it. The chicken crisped up nicely and the veggies were wonderful. The only change I'd make next time is to make the gravy with chicken broth/stock. I loved the consistency of the gravy, but thought the boullion was a touch too salty for our taste. That would be my only change, though. We loved the meal. Thank you!
