hey, this was the first time I was trying to roast a chicken and the recipe was awesome. But since I am Indian, I spiced up the chicken a bit. I made a paste of lemon juice, one tsp chilli powder, 1/4 tsp turmeric powder, salt and pepper and rubbed it into the chicken before roasting. But that was my personal choice. I followed the rest of the recipe as it is and my family just loved it, specially because of the large amount of veggies. Thank you CountryLady for the lovely recipe....

Made this today for Sunday Lunch with one larger chicken. Didn't have chicken broth so used stock ( 2 cups) instead. Really tasty and moist chicken achieved without the butter I usually use. I would do this again - in fact I suspect I will always cook my chicken this way. Thanks a lot a good find and addition to my repetoire as a " comfort food" cook. Sheila ( hailing from the UK)
