Lemon Chicken

1 chicken breast per serving.

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.

Pat dry

1 chicken breast, bone in, skin on per person

Place chicken bone side down on washable surface and pull back (but do not remove) skin. Place

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

Olive oil

And sprinkle the top of each chicken piece with additional

1/2 t rosemary

Place on lightly oiled rack of baking pan and bake ~30 minutes (depending on size of breast) until skin is well browned and internal temperature is 160 degrees F.

Since I usually have a large rosemary plant growing near a window,  I serve garnished with a sprig of fresh rosemary.
