    Made this for dinner last night grating one russet potato and stuffing it under the skin of a brined, trussed chicken. I added thyme and rosemary to the potato mixture and a cut up lemon to the pan when the chicken was set in the oven. Otherwise, followed recipe. Inadvertently placed chicken in pan breast side down so the breast skin was not browned (the other skin was amazing). Even factoring in this error, fantastic results. The kids loved this and Dave stripped the carcass. Used leftover pan dripping as basis for pork chop's jus the following night. Will make again! Served with a light salad and a glass of white, all you need for a show stopper meal.

    Excellent. Cut the chicken as suggested in the recipe to ensure bites of moist breast, flavorful potatoes and crisp skin. Will prepare chicken this way again.

    Terrific. Breast meat unbelievably moist; potatoes buttery and flavorful, even though cooked with only a tablespoon of butter. His carving suggestion needs to be followed for this recipe so you get a bite of crispy skin, luscious shredded potato, and perfectly cooked breast meat in every bite. I usually don't like white meat; this could make me a convert. Next time consider removing wishbone to make it easier to remove the breasts. Also, use largest CI skillet; the chicken fit perfectly in the skillet I used, but neither legs nor wings browned as much as I would have liked.
