    Gee, I have all the ingredients on hand except the convection oven. I'll run right out now and spend $ 1200 on a convection oven so I can make this "easy" recipie. Is there any editorial function out there in All Recipies land? What are you thinking. At least give directions re cooking time and temperatures for a conventional oven as well. Stupid recipie.  -  18 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The recipe does not specify boneless, skinless chicken-- you need to watch the video to see that. I had breasts with bones and skins, so it took longer. I put olive oil on the bottom side of the breast, then put a chunk of butter on the top side after turning. You could add a bit of lemon juice to.the sauce or deglaze with white wine for variety.  -  18 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The chicken was fantastic. The only downside: I would have put the oven lower. Paired it with some Porcini Mushroom Farro and Carrots. Easy cleanup too.  -  13 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
