This is a simple baked chicken recipe. The chicken was moist and flavorful but the meat was not as quite as flavorful as I thought it might have been given all the onions, garlic, and rosemary (gotta be a way to get more flavor into the meat). There were, however, lots of wonderful onions to spoon over the chicken which was quite flavorful with the garlic, rosemary, and olive oil. I will definetely make this recipe again possibly placing some onion, garlic, and rosemary beneath the skin of the chicken parts to infuse more flavor into the meat. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
This did make the kitchen smell wonderful. Onions, garlic and rosemary....can't get much better than that! Thanks.
I used shallots instead of garlic/onions. This was terriffic and my picky hubby even gave it a "good?" so that's a pretty high rating from him. Next time I'll buy more shallots and use more rosemary. Mmmmm
