    Th is s a moist, tasty and easy roast chicken. The roasting time was a half hour more for me.  -  08 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was pretty good and very easy. We added a few more spices to the skin. We also had to cook a bit longer (gas oven) and the skin wasn't super crispy but the flavour was great!  -  14 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
