Very nice recipe. I liked that I had all the ingredients on hand.Well...almost all; I had breast instead of thighs. Loved the roasted carrots.

Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! I love the combination of thyme and nutmeg together, which I have never tried before! Cut back the salt to 1/2 tsp which was perfect for us. The cook time was a wee bit off as the thighs were slightly overcooked and dry in places. That is easily rectified next time I make this wonderful recipe. Thank you for sharing Ellie!
