Absolutely delicious. I used chicken parts and followed the recipe exactly as written. Since parts were used it cooked in a shorter time. I have already recommended it to a friend. It will be one of my favorites.I had to use caraway seeds whole as I could not crush them but I like the seeds and as previously mentioned it is delicious.
