Great chicken dish. Also wonderful grilled! Work time does not include marinating time.

If you don't like lemon, garlic or rosemary don't bother trying this recipe but if you do go COOK IT. I was inspired by mightyro-cooking4u's photo to give this a try. I quartered a 2k chicken (removing the back bone - makes good stock) and thought as usual it would only take 45 minutes to cook but it took an hour (think they may have been because of the liquid of the lemon juice int he bottom) but it was moist and full of flavour. Thank you susie cooks for a great recipe.
