MarieAlice, what a wonderful recipe! It is so good and easy and it makes the chicken look & taste lovely! It was devoured by all at our Rosh Hashona dinner! We made 4 chickens so as to be able to have some left over for another nosh or meal but everyone liked the meal so much that they all took some home! It was terrific, thanks very much MarieAlice, Diane :)
