Wow- This was excellent! I added mushrooms with the potatoes and probably cooked a bit longer before stirring the potatoes. I wasn't sure it the minced garlic was the dried kind or fresh. I decided since the rosemary called for was dried, it was probably the dried kind. I didn't have any on hand so I used Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic. I didn't measure anything, just did what felt right on the amounts and it was simply delicious. This is a keeper!
I wanted a chicken/potatoes/carrots dinner that wasn't a mushy crockpot stew. This was everything promised. I stuffed the chicken with 1/2 an apple and 1/4 cucumber, and followed the recipe exactly otherwise. Crispy skin/exterior and very moist meat. Tasty veggies. I let everything sit about 15 minutes after taking it out of the oven. Thumbs up all around the table. Thanks!
Didn't need the i cup of water there were enough pan/olive oil drippings , also didn't use the butter
