    We liked this chicken a lot. The prep does not say whether to use the Italian seasoning in the BBQ sauce or on the skin of the chicken. I opted to mix it w/a bit of lemon pepper + olive oil & use my pastry brush to brush it over the skin after I had rubbed it w/the lemon halves. It was moist, flavorful & perfectly done in the stated time. I deglazed the pan w/a sml amt of water & served all as suggested using Pepperidge Farm Cornbread Stuffing Mix. The parts are all excellent, but the whole did not seem compatible. There was no real use for the thin & BBQ flavored sauce & the stuffing was almost odd w/a BBQ chicken. I kept thinking of things more typical of BBQ flavors like French fries, cole slaw & potato salad. BUT that did not keep me from enjoying a 2nd tasty helping. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)

    This is a good basic recipe. It reminds me of beer can chicken only not as moist. I like the idea of the bbq sauce and will try it next time between the skin and the chicken as I don't care for the skin. I will also add more spices.
