bone-in chicken breast halves, with skin
My family and I loved this recipe. I used skinless chicken breast and the chicken came out so moist. The smell of it cooking was a temptation for the taste to come. It was a very easy recipe. ******
To be honest, the chicken came out REALLY dry. I don't think I'll be making this dish anytime soon. Sorry.
Wonderful recipe. Everything was excellent and very easy to make. I followed some of the recommendations and mixed the butter and seasonings together prior to baking. I also added some lemon juice in the bottom of the pan. I think the lemon juice added the finishing touch!! Husband loved it and says it's a definite keeper. Thank you for the recipe.
Delicious and easy! I melted the butter and mixed the spices in with it and then brushed that over skinless chicken breasts. I was worried it would be too much basil but it was actually perfect! Mine was done in about 55 minutes.
this was awesome!!! I mixed the butter together with the herbs - added lemon pepper and thyme - and then put a good sized dollop of the herbed butter on each breast. Also, a note on the cooking time - if you raise the temp to 375 and cover the dish with foil, it lowers the cooking time to 30-35 minutes and the chicken comes out cooked through but SOOOO juicy and tender!! thanks!!
I am a cooking idiot. I chose this as the first recipe to make for my girlfriend (ever) as a surprise. She walked into the house after work and said "...IT SMELLS _AWESOME_ IN HERE!" The chicken turned out great, I scored many points. Thank you.
My hubby absolutely LOVES just your normal roasted chicken pieces. He could eat it once a week. Never used butter with this dish before, but it was certainly a treat Nora! I did, as others, add a lot more seasonings which made the chicken even better. Of course you can use whatever herbs or spices you like. I found this recipe from "Taylor's" reviews and I must say that it was so nice to read reviews from someone who is obviously a very sweet and caring person. As I was reading I felt the same as when a stranger passes you on the street and smiles at you for no reason! Taylor, you made my day! (almost named my daughter Taylor, but only a month before, decided on Tyler. Thanks so much Nora!
Just made this for dinner tonight and it turned out great!!! I can't understand why some people said it was dry, they must have over-cooked it because it was extremely tender & juicy. All it needed was a little kosher salt and pepper before you put it in the oven. Will definitely make this again!
