Reviewed Roasted Butternut Squash

Aug 27, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I agree with all three of the previous reviews. Definitely either pre-cook in microwave or lower temp a little on oven because this recipe most certainly takes at least an hour. I made this recipe for a second time, thinking maybe I did something wrong the first. Turns out I had to roast them 30minutes longer, and I even raised the temp to 425 d"

A little less lemons on the sauce is what I used & it was very lemony still. Very tasty though & complimented the red snapper nicely! "

i made this yet again, this time i had to leave out the beer but used chicken stock instead, and i used finger chili peppers as the hot pepper added to the sauce. extra cinnamon & cocoa this time, as well. i think that this could be spicier, so i add my own hotness to the dish. but this is a great base recipe to follow. thanks.""

I made this recipe for the 2nd time, with more fresh chopped herbs & extra chicken stock. although the flavoring is good and the meat tender, they still seem a bit dry. next time, i am going to set the oven heat lower and simmer longer for the juices to really set in.""

VERY GOOD. my husband dislikes raw red onions, so i used french-fried onions that we had in the pantry. the dressing was very tasty, although i added a little extra sugar (about 1tsp) because i thought it was too vinegar-y. im definitely saving this recipe to my favorites to use always.""

The chicken seemed to be a little dry and plain-tasting, but we did enjoy it. I agree that the peanut sauce tasted like not much more than PB itself, so next time, I will add some extra ingredients as suggested below.""

Very tasty! A little salty in my opinion so you may want to nix the extra salt ingredient (but maybe that was from the store-bought bread crumbs). I agree that next time, I will use homemade. ""

Easy to prepare, smelled great while cooking! I substituted a Miller Lite beer for the amber, though. Meat was tender, but overall seemed to be missing something? Didn't seem as flavorful as I thought it would be. ""
