      My friend and I loved this roasted chicken, but I do agree with Zurie that to give it 5 stars in a contest it was not quite perfect and unique enough. I also agree that the soy sauce could have been used in this recipe as well. However, in contrast to Zurie I had lots of juice in the pan which was great. I did not use the brussels sprout because I don't like it, but used more of the other vegetables. Thank you for creating this recipe. It made a lovely dinner.

      A good effort! Maybe my chicken wasn't large enough, but the amount of veggies the cook wanted in the cavity of the chicken could not possibly fit in! The amount of Brussels sprouts also puzzled me: 1 1/2 lbs?? In the end I decided it might have been a typing error, and used 2 cups instead. When the dish was assembled I realised all the flavours were actually in the cavity -- the celery, rosemary and garlic might have done a better job if snipped over the veggies around the chicken. Pouring plain orange juice over the chicken ... it could have done with a pinch of sugar and some soy sauce, maybe? The oven heat was too high and the chicken and vegetables started to burn, so I had to turn it down considerably, and put a piece of foil loosely over the dish. The mix of vegetables were great and the flavours really complemented one another. There wasn't quite enough juice or sauce left in the dish (as the recipe suggested, instr. 17), and we used extra "herb and garlic" seasoning over the veggies. Yet, all in all, it was a very nice home-style dinner, which we really enjoyed. All this needs to become a higher-starred dish is a little attention to quantities and seasoning.
