A long soak in a sweet, slightly spicy brine makes this chicken one of the juiciest you’ll ever make, infused throughout with warm maple flavor. Glazing with maple syrup makes it a showstopping, glossy-skinned beauty.

The chicken itself is excellent: tender, juicy and with lovely flavor from the maple brine. My frustration is the temperature is too low to get the delicious skin I love on roasted chicken. Both times I made the recipe it never caramelized like the picture. Tonight I am making the recipe a third time and will use temperatures from other culinary sources.
Excellent brine, the chicken was moist and the flavor combination wonderful. A definite repeat regardless of the cost.
we were disappointed in this dish. The cost was really high and we had hoped that the flavor would really shine through. When it was done cooking, sadly we could not really taste any of the ingredients we had spent so much money on...this one is not a keeper for us
