    mommyoffour's Note:

    This is so flavorful with the fresh rosemary and lemon. I make this when my garden is growing so I have the fresh rosemary. You can substitute dried rosemary for the fresh, just use 3/4 tsp. I usually serve this with a rice pilaf and veggies.

      I made this recipe with these directions. personally, I had to end up baking the chicken at a lower temperature for an extra 15min because the juices burned on the bottom of the broiler pan creating a lot of smoke. My boyfriend and I both agreed the recipe was not very flavorful until we added more salt. There were no instructions marinate the chicken prior to cooking - which is why I believe it came out so flavorless. This just wasn't for us I guess.

      This is a new favorite! I have a huge rosemary bush (the only plant I've ever managed to grow successfully), so we always have all these ingredients on hand. I doubled the recipe, and we had it for dinner last night with some rice pilaf and roasted zucchini. The leftovers will have a starring role in a salad with mixed greens, oranges, red onions, cucumbers, and red bell pepper. This will be a go-to recipe all year, I'm sure, and I can't wait to try it on the grill as well. Thanks so much for posting!

      Wonderfully simple recipe! I marinated the chicken for about 20 minutes and got very tasty results! I'm definitely making this again.
