Tried this recipe?Let me know how it was!
Was hoping we would like this but way too lemony. Was not a hit in our home.
Just made this recipe tonight! Delicious except for the fact that I think it called for too much poultry seasoning. Next time I will definitely be cutting back.
Hi, I made this recipe today and it was amazing! However, when I used the “recipe builder” app on the weight watchers website, it said each serving is 6 points plus. Why is there is discrepancy?
Hello! I want to try this, but I have a question about poultry seasoning. I live overseas so I can’t get this… what is in it? What would be the nearest combination of basic spices?
This post seems to have done the trick!
We tried this dish tonight and it was a huge hit! I used pinot grigio and added 1 1/2 tbsp of minced shallots. The flavors were bright and complex but un-fussy. And WOW was it tender and juicy! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. We will be using it for years to come, I’m sure.
