Great way to use up some rosemary if you have a lot in your garden. I only had 2 chicken breasts so kept it to 3 sprigs and only used 3/4 cups of water, but kept everything else the same and it was delicious. I didn't get any gravy either, but I did get a lot of really tasty extra breadcrumb mixture in the pan which would have been delicious over some broccoli...next time...
this was quite good. i used fresh garlic instead of the powdered (2 cloves) and added the salt (1/2 tsp) and pepper (1/4 tsp) in with the breadcrumbs. after putting the breadcrumbs on the (boned) chicken, i froze. after thawing, i cooked the chicken on a bed of carrots, onions, and sweet potatoes. it took about 1:20 minutes for the veggies to get tender. the chicken was moist and flavorful. instead of water, i used 1/2 white wine and 1/2 chicken stock. the house smelled great while this was cooking! i removed the foil cover from the chicken for the last 10 minutes of cooking to crisp up the breadcrumbs. i'm not sure what i did different, but i didn't notice any "gravy" as a previous reviewer had noted. but i didn't miss it. this is a keeper.
This is a great dish! Easy and quick to assemble with fantastic results. I did make one small change as I do not like garlic powder. When whizzing up the bread-crumb mixture, I added a teaspoon of my own roasted garlic. For my palate, roasted garlic gives a more rounded taste as opposed to the sharpness of garlic powder.
This is a wonderful recipe and made for a fragrant and romantic meal. You see, DH picked a nice sprig of fresh rosemary for me when he was at the park with the kids today. I was looking for a use for it and most recipes called for 1 tsp of dried rosemary - this one calls for a generous amount of fresh rosemary. I followed the directions, but laid the chicken on a bed of carrots, onions and potatoes. It produced it's own gravy and the chicken was moist.
