Lemon-Rosemary Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Erindipity

From a May 2010 Cooking Light edition. This is a really easy simple dinner. The magazine recommends serving with fresh asparagus and polenta. I served with a creamy mushroom risotto.

Lovely flavors; what can be better than lemon and rosemary?! It *does* need to be baked longer than 25 minutes when it's bone-in -- I thought more like 15 minutes more.
