Skillet Rosemary Chicken

Skillet Rosemary Chicken

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Cook time:25 Minutes


  • 0.75 pound(s) red-skinned potatoes (small) quartered
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 sprig(s) rosemary, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon(s) rosemary leaves
  • 1 clove(s) garlic smashed
  • pinch(s) red pepper flakes
  • 2 lemons squeezed/juiced
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts bone in, skin on
  • 10 ounce(s) cremini mushrooms halved


Preheat the oven to 450. Cover the potatoes with cold water in a saucepan and salt the water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook until tender, about 8 minutes; drain and set aside.

Pile the rosemary leaves, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt and the red pepper flakes on a cutting board, then mince and mash into a paste using a large knife. Transfer the paste to a bowl. Stir in the juice of 1 lemon and the olive oil. Add the chicken and turn to coat.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken, skin-side down, cover and cook until the skin browns, about 5 minutes. Turn the chicken; add the mushrooms and potatoes to the skillet and drizzle with the juice of the remaining lemon.

Add the rosemary sprigs and the squeezed lemon halves to the skillet; transfer to the oven and roast, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through and the skin is crisp, 20 to 25 minutes.
