    I have made this a few times, it is delicious and easy to make. So far, all of Ina's recipes have been a success.

    We really liked this dish and would like to make it again as it was so easy to prepare and more exciting than the normal roast chicken we make. I marinated it overnight (~24 hours) and it was fragrant and the color and crisp were incredible.

    Pg. 125. I'm a big fan of Ina Garten -- her recipes are pretty foolproof for the most part. So, I expected to love this dish, especially given the ingredients. I followed the directions exactly with the exception that I marinated for about 8-9 hours on the day I cooked it rather than overnight. So, that may have been the issue. In any event, I liked it but didn't love it -- the flavor of the ginger did not really come through. Next time I would remove the covering at the beginning of baking, not halfway through the process. I did love the fact that it was a snap to prepare, so I will probably try it again.
