      Steve, this is the only way to go - The brine is great! ~ keeps the chicken really moist. My hubby used brown sugar instead of white.

      Steve this was such a neat recipe in that you bake the chicken and potatoes separately but in the same pan - easy cleanup. The chicken was moist and flavorful (garlic) as were the potatoes which my family devoured. I like that this recipe calls for you to butterfly the chicken rather than baking the bird intact - makes for a nice presentation. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe!

      Oh this is so very nice. Absolutely wonderful smells came from my kitchen this weekend when I made this bird. The brine keeps the chicken so moist and tender and the garlic & butter drippings on the potatoes added excellent flavor. I loved the presentation of this dish and added fresh green beans and crusty rolls on the side. Thanks so much! Loved this one Steve!
