  • Ready In

  1. Rub chicken breasts with olive oil and garlic; sprinkle with salt, black pepper, rosemary, and basil. Arrange chicken in a large baking dish and refrigerate at least 45 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Bake in preheated oven until chicken meat is no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 45 to 60 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the breast meat should read 165 degrees F (75 degrees C).

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 o...

This was a very good receipe. The person that broiled the chicken must not be able to follow directions. The recipe states to bake the chicken not broil it.
