I chose this bcz I had all the ingredients. After 1/2 hour, I basted with olive oil, as there were no real drippings (even at the end). This was not done (except for breast meat) even at 1 1/2 hours. Easy to make, but the flavor wasn't anything special (although it might have changed if we had cooked it longer or higher heat.) Thanks.
