Well, I made the sage roasted chicken and it was just delicious. I followed your instructions(e.g. 475 degrees, 20 minutes, breast up etc) to a tee, and the chicken was perfect. The recipe was easy to follow, and fairly easy to prepare. The thing that took longest was peeling those cipollini onions!!! I was wondering if I could have just used regular pearl onions?
Anyway, thank you so much for inspiring me, and then holding my hand throughout. I now may even have the courage to try the Zuni recipe, which has seemed very daunting to me, for some reason.
Thank you again, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate your super-quick responses to my questions.
