Chicken and Herbs Recipe

Judy Sargent of Rome, New York sent the recipe for this moist and tender chicken. Nicely seasoned with a variety of herbs, it's easy to prepare...but seems special enough for company.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Arrange chicken in an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Whisk together the oil, onion, garlic, thyme, salt, rosemary, pepper, sage, marjoram and hot pepper sauce. Pour over chicken.
  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 30-40 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°, basting occasionally. Remove and discard skin from chicken. Sprinkle with parsley. Drizzle with juice. Yield: 4 servings.
