    This is a simple baked chicken recipe. The chicken was moist and flavorful but the meat was not as quite as flavorful as I thought it might have been given all the onions, garlic, and rosemary (gotta be a way to get more flavor into the meat). There were, however, lots of wonderful onions to spoon over the chicken which was quite flavorful with the garlic, rosemary, and olive oil. I will definetely make this recipe again possibly placing some onion, garlic, and rosemary beneath the skin of the chicken parts to infuse more flavor into the meat. Thanks for a lovely recipe!

    I used shallots instead of garlic/onions. This was terriffic and my picky hubby even gave it a "good?" so that's a pretty high rating from him. Next time I'll buy more shallots and use more rosemary. Mmmmm

    This was so tasty & sooooo easy to make!


I have been a Central Illinois resident all my life. My hobbies include fishing with my husband, reading, counted cross stitch, and of course, cooking (especially baking)! I currently work in an office, behind a desk, pushing paper. My dream would be to open my own bakery. Spending time in the kitchen is very relaxing to me, and it keeps me connected to my domestic side!
