    This is a Pampered Chef recipe that is wonderful! I usually make a large enough chicken or double the recipe to make Chicken Chili the next day.

      OMG-this is so good! My chicken was a bit less than 4 pounds, so I had it in the oven for a total of 1 hour and 20 minutes-1 hour 5 minutes covered & 15 minutes uncovered; and then tented for 10 minutes. Somewhere I read to cook chicken at 400 degrees 45 minutes per kilogram so that is what I did. Served with oven roasted potatoes and steamed carrots with the sauce poured over the chicken. I did add a vegetable based broth to the juices before thickening with flour/water mixture. Thanks min_1 for posting a keeper! Made for Fall PAC '08.
