    • Hi Barb, we are sorry for the confusion. The Marinade ingredients are actually listed right under the word “Marinade” in the printable recipe. Hope this helps!

  1. The written recipe for Cranberry Balsamic Roasted Chicken is not the same as in the video. There are other ingredients on the video such as olive oil and garlic cloves which are not in the written version. And the written version says 1 tbs PEACH maple syrup instead of EACH. And if you print it from the video the last step #10 is missing. At least #10 is on the written version on whatever it is I subscribed to just to get the correct recipe which I didn’t get except for step #10. I would get the recipe from looking at the video but I just couldn’t keep up. Would you PLEASE email me the correct and complete recipe – ingredients and steps – that is shown on the video?
