Wonderful!!! I love rosemary and lemon together so this was perfect. I even put DH to work to grill the chicken when I was preparing the rest of the dinner. Definately a keeper for the nights when you want something that will be easy to prepare. (I might cut down on the oil next time but that is our preference}. Thank you for posting. Made for Fall Pick a Chef 2012.

I halfed the ingredients and made it for dinner for myself since my other half was out. It was very easy to make, but I felt a little too lemony, When I make it again i'll put less lemon in.

I made this for 30 people for a birthday party. Super easy and great taste. Nana had gotten frozen breasts from Costco so I whipped up the marinade and put it in the bags and let the chicken marinate while it was thawing, then added fresh lemon slices, red onion and rosemary sprigs while baking for presentation. Thank you for a recipe that allowed me to enjoy the party yet help in serving a fantastic meal!
