Don't think I did anything wrong but it was really bland.

The chicken always comes out perfect! Dark meat, white meat, bone in or out. My chef hubby thinks I can cook when I make this & my 3 year old cleans her plate! It's my go to recipe!

I used chicken breasts, and added about 1/4 cup of champagne to the marinade. It was phenomenal! Definitely be eating again.

Very juicy chicken! Just the way I like it. Great meal and easy to make. Served with mashed potatoes and green peas. Thanks for the recipe!

Going to try this out tonight. My 4 year old loves 'chicken on the bone' aka chicken legs, so I'm always looking for new ideas so he isn't eating the same thing all the time! Can't wait to try it!
