    This was great. Quick, easy and the chicken stayed really moist. The herbs and onions made it taste like a roast dinner but with just some greens and new potatoes it was a light mid week meal. Been struggling to find new recipes for my partner straight home from a liver transplant who now has some dietary restrictions on top of being a little fussy with his food. Thanks!
