Easy and hearty

"Delicious! Much easier than most chicken recipes I've tried, which make you cook on the stove then the oven. I added crushed lemon, garlic, fennel, and croutons mixed into the potatoes and these flavors worked nicely as well.
As one more added bonus, we took the dish we used for roasting, with the leftover juices and baked on stuff and boiled the chicken bones in it for stock, then added back in our leftover chicken with some celery and carrots for a wonderful chicken soup."

Very easy to make and good. I would probably try the seasoning/method with chicken breast next time.

This was quick and easy to make, but it was a little bland for my taste.

This is awesome! I didn't have lemon pepper so I added garlic powder. No paprika added. Used drumsticks and breasts. So good, moist, tender and delicious!

Yumm! I tried this and it came out better the second time. And I just made this with chicken breast and it was delicious! I did have to cook it a little longer and add a little more seasoning but I was so tasty!

So delicious! Didn't have lemon pepper (actually I've never heard of it) so used salt, pepper, and yellow lemon juice. It was so good! Husband liked it but recommended I use more salt.
