This quick and easy, simple and delicious roasted chicken with lemon and rosemary is perfect for a weeknight dinner or when you have guests.
Delicious! I used all bone-in breasts and 2 chicken legs for the little guy. These came out very moist and tender. I didn't have fresh rosemary, so I used some dried. This also made great pan juices. The only thing I would do differently next time would be to use an extra lemon to squeeze the juice on the chicken before baking to get a better lemon flavor. Made a great dinner tonight...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. - 10 Feb 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I just made this today. I used bone-in chicken breasts and dried, instead of fresh, rosemary since I had none. I stopped the cooking at 40 minutes since breasts have a tendency to over-bake and dry. It came out delicious: tender, juicy and very flavorful! This is a prime example of recipes that I love-quick, easy, simple ingredients, and tasty results. - 22 Mar 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Nothing wrong with these ingredients! Unfortunately just tossing some rosemary on to the chicken did nothing to flavor it. The lemon came through nicely, but the sprigs of rosemary simply dried up and blackened. I love fresh rosemary with chicken, and perhaps chopping up the leaves and marinating with the rosemary, garlic and lemon would build the flavor I'm looking for. I'm also thinking that using these ingredients in a compound butter and then rubbing under the skin would be an awesome way to infuse more flavor. - 03 Dec 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
