Made this last night for dinner and was really disappointed. The chicken was exceptionally dry, and I even took the precaution of adding some of the juice to the baking dish before putting it the oven/reducing remaining juice to try to prevent that! The sauce had a good flavor, so I may try making the dish one more time with multiple tweaks--marinating the chicken first, sauteing breasts for a very short time, removing from the pan/setitng aside, making/thickening the sauce first, then nestling the breasts in it to finish cooking on top of the stove COVERED. IF that doesn't help, then this recipe is a goner!
I followed the recipe using only two boneless chicken breasts. The sauce was tasty but barely made enough for just two servings. Like others I recommend you double or triple the sauce. It's ok for a quick weeknight meal but this isn't going to be a favorite.
This came out wonderfully! It was very lean. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts and sprinkled the remaining rosemary from the sprig into the sauce to make it look pretty. I served it with sauted collard greens (made with chicken broth, garlic and sliced almonds) and it went very well :)
Great recipe! My chicken came out pretty rubbery, but I think my pieces were just too thick. Outstanding overall though.
Great way for cooking chicken quickly on a weeknight when time is scarce. Double the amounts given for the sauce ... the recipe only made about 1/4 cup! Next time, I'm using boneless chicken and will allow it to marinade for awhile and then bake.
The lemon flavor is very concentrated after simmering for 20 minutes almost to the point where it overwhelmed the chicken and rosemary. Next time I'll simmer it a bit less or use less lemon juice.
Loved this recipe. The ingredient list is short and readily available. Most importantly, it comes together quickly, but looks and tastes like you slaved over the stove. This is definitely a keeper. I served it as suggested, with green beans and creamy potenta.
It was easy to make with ingredients that I always have on hand, and it tasted fresh and delicious.
