Chef's notes

For health reasons, I try to avoid frying whenever I can especially when there is already so much butter as in this recipe. As a healthy alternative, I sprayed the chicken pieces with a little olive oil and roasted them for about 35 minutes at 220°C (425°, Gas 7). They tasted just as nice!
