    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)

    For my Designer Thanksgiving Dinner, I decided to cook and serve Country Lady's Roast Chicken with Vegetables, as well as Evenlyn's turkey because I knew a couple of my dinner guests are not fond of turkey...... Selected because the recipe is specifically for two chickens; why do just one? Left overs are always great. (I like having cooked chicken in my refrigerator, for my lunches, and dinners.) I cooked two small chickens in one large LOOK cooking bag, with amazing results. The chickens were cooked well ahead of the turkey, and reheated prior to serving. The skin was nicely browned, chicken meat tender and extremely flavourful with lots of juice for gravy. I love vegetables cooked inside the chicken; it enhances flavours of both chicken and veggies. I packed as many of the veggies inside the chickens; ie. leeks, onion, red peppers. Since I was serving squash for dinner, this item was eliminated from the chicken recipe.... Thanks Marg for being there with your Five Thumbs Up recipe.
