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."
