Wow! I was very impressed with is. I am not one to eat chicken out of the oven. I usually don't like it. I have been looking for a baked chicken recipe that I would like. I followed the directions to the T. I almost forgot the olive oil. Had to pull it back out of the oven to put it on. I baked for an hour, basting every 15 minutes. Very juice! The skin was very good too! I think the secret is the chicken broth. Can't wait to try with thighs. Thanks!!!

Delicious! What a surprise...I really thought the skin was going to be soggy but it turned out nice and crispy...it reminded me of Thanksgiving turkey...I used veggie broth cuz that's what I had and I had exactly 2 cups of it...leftover from another recipe...anyway I used a 13x7 pan...I didn't want the broth to totally cover the breasts...I also basted it about every 15 mins like another reviewer did...served it with a salad and a baked potato that I baked along side of the dish in the oven...thanks for posting it! =)

Excellent. I followed the recipe as is, except I added poultry seasoning as well. The skin was very crispy and the chicken was moist and succulent. I removed the chicken to a cutting board and covered lightly with foil. Then I strained the juices and put them into a saucepan and made a great gravy. I added 1/2 Cup of water with about 1/4 Cup flour. So goooood.
