I used two large bone in breasts for this recipe. I was only able to marinate for about 8 hours but still had a very flavorful, moist dish. I decided to put the lemon juice in the maranade in the beginning as the instructions do not mention it. The juice really gives this dish a good zing. Fresh rosemary from the garden and I was all set. Very easy, would work wonderfully for a week night supper but did us well as our Sunday meal.

This was terrific, I marinaded it for 30 hours. It was so tender and full of flavour but not overpowered by the garlic as I thought it may be. I actually served it with a tossed green salad. Well done.
