I quartered a 1.3 kilogram chicken (just about impossible to get skin on chicken here and even less on the bone the only way is to bone a whole chicken, I did remove wings from the breast) and cooked the Marylands (what we call thigh and leg intact) with the breasts and the wings. I did have to use dry thyme due to our hot conditions which sent the rosemary rampant and smothered the lemon thyme. I did cut back on the salt a lot (only used a 1/4 teaspoon in the mix and very lightly sprinkled before baking (would omit that for us) but for tastes and it still overpowered the dish though the lemon flavour did come through and I was really surprised that the garlic was not more overpowering. Overall a quite enjoyable dish thank you MsPia, made for Best of 2013 Review Game.

l really wanted to like this recipe. I love Ina and her cookbooks. But I found that I don't like the taste of oregano with chicken. Next time I may omit it.

Really good flavors. I used fresh oregano since we have it growing, and skinless chicken since that is what we prefer. I did pour the oil over the chicken though (probably half what is called for), and it gave it a nice little browning. I also only sprinkled salt over the chicken (didn't add the extra two times), so the salt ratio was good for us. It was too bad that the liquid around the chicken burned totally black onto the baking dish, it would have made a tasty "sauce" - maybe if you added more liquid that wouldn't happen and you could use it that way.

So Good! I replaced the wine with chicken broth but followed the recipe aside from that. It was moist and full of lovely flavor. I served this with lemon rice and steamed broccoli and carrots for a great meal. I'll surely make this again.

Luscious chicken, the hefty garlic/olive oil base made it sing and kept the lemon from being too tart. This was easy to put together. It went great with Sriracha Honey Roasted Broccoli and Lemon Rice Pilaf. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

Yummy lemon and garlic, how can you go wrong. Super easy and inexpensive. Served with roasted carrots and potatoes. I see now that I forgot to broil it, but next time will. Thanks for sharing, ms pia.

Super easy dinner, AND a crowd pleaser. This will be kept on hand for when I need to cook for people I don't know very well! everything blended so well and nothing was over powering. Great dish.
