This is my recipe so I just wanted to offer a few more helpful tips! Tip #1: Feel free to add more herbs and spices to taste-- I often up the rosemary and add in dried thyme or oregano, Tip #2: To get an extra crispy skin switch the oven to broil on high heat for the last 5-10 minutes of cooking, and Tip #3: This chicken also tastes great the next day so feel free to make extra for sandwiches, soups, tacos, or chicken pot pie.
Bland as bland gets. Also, you should go to 60 minutes, not 45, as the meat near the bone was a bit gamey and needed more time. Sorry,
We have a meal like this basically once every ten days using Trader Joe's kosher chicken. The difference with this one was the garlic and the herbs since I usually just use salt and pepper along with my lemon olive oil. This was very nice, and I'll change to this more savory style now. Very good! We loved it! Thanks!
Tried this and loved it. Easy to prepare. I didn't have rosemary but added a Mrs. Dash alternative. I did broil it during the last 15 minutes and it came out crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Great tasting and it seems healthy. Will definitely make it again.
I drizzle on the olive oil, add herbs (basil, oregano, thyme) plus onion powder, salt and pepper, top with minced garlic and a sprig of fresh rosemary on each piece. I don't refrigerate them for 45 as the recipe suggests; I just put them straight in the oven, and it always turns out delicious! We love this recipe!
".... looks like you've spent hours in the chicken"!! HA!!
Really delicious. Flavorful and juicy. I cooked four large whole breasts with bone for 60 minutes. An easy recipe that I will come back to again and again!
I made the recipe exactly as written, and it exceeded my expectations. The meat was moist and flavorful, and tasted great. This will be my go-to recipe for bone-in chicken breasts from now on.
