Top Review by Ilysse

Very good. I changed it to 6 servings. I left out the butter as I am on a diet. DH doesn't like rosemary so I used thyme. Used fresh garlic no garlic salt. Not sure how to crush an onion so I sliced one thin and placed it just on the bottom of the packet. I also baked in a 375F oven for about 1hour, no flipping. It was very good and I am sure I'll make it again. I served with fresh steamed green beans and Creamy Potato Salad With Lemon and Fresh Herbs Recipe #235089 It was a very good meal although next time I think I'll serve it over some sort of pasta or grain and used the juice for flavoring. Thanks for posting.
