  1. I couldn't find threebe or even what would be a good substitute. The chicken turned out fine of course but there was nothing special about it. The potatoes are a mystery. I am a relatively new cook anf I followed the instructions exactly. When I took the potatoes out an hour later I still had stock and some potatoes that seemed boiled rather than what I was expecting. I thought they would be flavourfull potatoe wedges with a bit of a crust. But they weren't.
  2. I looked up threebe in my herb books and used half oregano and thyme as a substitute. Iused boneless skinless chicken breasts (10 in a double recipe) and they baked in about 20 minutes. I had problems with the potatoes as well. I did microwave the mixture to start it and basted them every 10 mins or so. They should have been covered the whole time and cooked in a single layer so they would get more coverage from the liquid. Using new potatoes cut in half they took around 15 mins. in the oven after 10 in the microwave. We loved the flavor, using the juice from the potatoes over the top. We forgot to mix the sour cream and garlic ahead of time so left out that garlic, If we had had any leftovers they would make great salad. But between a hungry teenager and lunch today there isn't anything left. We'll be eating this again soon.
