This is a great recipe! Very easy with great flavor (even though I left out the rosemary) and the onions were tasty too! I used the juice of one of the lemons and sliced two others to top the chicken. The leftovers will make great chicken salad! I was super impressed with how moist the chicken was--I roasted 6 breasts over 2 sliced vidalia onions for 40 minutes and then turned the oven off and had to take time out before dinner to help my kids. The pan sat in the oven for quite a while, then on the stovetop, and then I reheated the chicken--and it was still moist! Definitely a keeper!!!

Love this chicken recipe! The chicken was so moist. I added a bit of Franks hot sauce with the lemon juice.

This is a great chicken recipe. I think this would be good with other herbs as well. Thanks for posting. Made for Fall PAC 08.
