    I made this today for Easter. They came out very moist. They took about 5 min longer than the suggested cooking time to get done, that could have been my oven though. Next time I might try basting them with the juices every 5-10 min or so to get a better taste of the vermouth sauce in the meat. Overall, pretty good.

    This sounds great. I need to start cooking these again. Chuck likes them. The boys call them "dead birds". They think its so cool to eat half a bird. Kids, gotta love 'um.
