Garlic Roast Chicken With Rosemary and Lemon

"This is a Rachael Ray recipe. It is quick enough for a weeknight dinner and great for a Sunday dinner with family. I usually serve this with mashed potatoes."

    Great chicken recipe, quick to make and delicious! Loved all that garlic; I used the wine (instead of broth) and we really enjoyed the fresh and savory taste of this chicken - thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2010

    Wow, this was the best dinner I ever made. Except I didn't have rosemary, so I used oregano. And I used both chicken breasts and thighs. Perfect paired with brown basmati rice and baby bok choy. It's officially my new favourite, and I'd make it for company, too!

    This is one of my family 's favourite recipes!! I change just a few things. We found 4 sprigs of rosemary too much, I prob use two for one tablespoon. I also like to brown the chicken just a bit for some color. Glad you posted it! Her 4 minute spicy garlic shrimp are also out of this world.


My children laugh at my public name, but I truly couldn't come up with a name for me! Anyway, I am a married mom of 4. I have always liked to cook, but I have never been a recipe kind of gal, instead I have always just made things up as I went (unless it was a baked good). Usually things turn out really well, but my daughters are now late teens early 20's and want me to tell them how to make things, this is difficult when every time you make something it changes. This is how I joined RecipeZaar, I figured if I could begin to post recipes to the site then they could just go online and find my recipes without having to ask. I have also learned that it does save time to follow recipes, I especially enjoy Rachael Ray, even when I thinnk something sounds a little odd 9 times out of 10 it turns out wonderful. As I write I have a pot of stoup simmering waiting for dinner to come! My son has his "fan favs", with the girls mostly gone away to school now its fun to put food in front of him and watch him and his dad fight over it!
