I was a bit unsure when it didnt tell you to add any moisture but it worked out very well. The chicken was very moist, fell off the bone. The 2nd time I made it instead of the foil balls in the base I put a couple of carrots and an onion in the base and sat the chicken on them. Still didnt add any moisture. The veg added to the taste of the stock. Thanks for sharing! - 10 May 2011


Try putting the chicken breast side down on the vegetables to retain moisture in the breast meat. - 18 Oct 2011


Made it healthier. Remove the skin then cook as directed for a healthier option. Add a little water or chicken stock to kick start the steaming process. Wine works well too :-) - 12 Aug 2010
