      Pretty good. Gravy was awesome. The only thing missing from this recipe is some sage. It definitely made something nice out of a cheap leg of turkey.

      We totally enjoyed this recipe! The baking time works beautifully. I've always baked chicken pieces at one temperature the entire time in the oven. Baking at the higher temperature gets the meat cooking then the lower temperature finishes it without drying it out. I will bake chicken this way from now on! It is juicy, tender, and melts in your mouth. An unusual occurance for meat but a delicious one!!!!

      That was great.Used all fresh herbs, and sage instead of rosemary, which I don't like. There was nothing left. Will do this again
