This is a really simple way to cook chicken (especially if no grill is available) that provides an interesting and yummy variation for just a little work.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Wash and pat dry
1 chicken breast, bone in, skin on per person
3 pieces of thinly sliced lemon (round)
on each breast, pressing down on the lemon to release some of the juice and sprinkle with
1/2 t rosemary
Return skin to cover lemon and rosemary.
Lightly brush skin with
And sprinkle with additional
1/2 t rosemary.
Place on rack of baking pan and bake ~30 minutes (depending on size of breast) until skin is well browned and internal temperature is 180 degrees F.
Since I keep a large rosemary plant on my window sill, I serve garnished with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
