We eat a LOT of chicken (we raise our own pastured poultry), and this recipe is just about the STANDARD OF PERFECTION if you ask me! It is SO easy, and so juicy (without being watery), and the whole thing has a simplicity that makes it quite a classic. We served corn kernels on the side ("someone" used the last pkg of home-grown corncobs from the freezer and didn't tell me!), but I poured some of the self-made gravy over the corn (along with the fresh asparagus), and it was darn-near perfect. I used about a pound of fresh baby red potatoes (quartered) and they turned out beautifully, too. I had to add about 1/3 cup more of water, too, about half-way through the cooking time. I'm pretty sure we will be eating this sort of stuff in Heaven someday! Can't wait!
