This defies description. It is so delicious and great for busy times when you want to make things in advance. I was once told by a real gourmand: This chicken rocks! It is so easy to make and no one will believe you didn't slave in the kitchen for hours.

Delicious and easy. You can use three large chicken half-breasts (recommend on the bone) instead of a whole chicken cut-up. Also: I think it's important to bake COVERED with foil. My first effort (without) was too dry, but the second one (with) was perfect. "Enough ketchup" here is, in my view, 2x or 3x the mayo.
