My favorite recipe!, Member emiliegrace

I have made this recipe countless times over the last few years and it just never gets old. I put a little extra of the seasonings on the skin of the chicken; it looks nice and gives extra flavor. Also, I bake it in glass dish with chunks of potatoes and carrots with a bit of the same seasoning. Absolutely delectable!
