I really liked this recipe.I used 2 bone-in chicken breasts and baked them for about 1 hour.They were very moist and tasty.Great recipe.

This was really very good. Very easy to prepare and a nice balance of herbs. We did find that the taste was improved by sprinkling lemon juice over the chicken before the oven stage (hence the four stars) but this may be purely a taste preference on our part. Certainly worthy of five stars if you are not a lemon junkie.
