This recipe has potential. I made it as stated, but I will alter things next time. Too much salt! I will sub out the garlic salt and onion salt for powders next time around. And it only took approx 2 cups of water to make the 1 inch required, but 4 chicken bouillon cubes were way to much. I would also have to say that this is more of a "roasted" chicken, rather than "baked". All in all, a nice (but salty) dinner. Thank you for sharing. (Made for PAC - Spring 2013)
