Family loved this one. I put the rosemary in with the wine so the rosemary would "soften up" a little bit before eating. I served it over jasmine rice and the sauce absorbed into the rice for a wonderful flavor.
We served this when we had friends over, it was a bug success. My husband (world's pickiest eater)'s only problem was the "texture of the rosemary", so he picked it out. Other than that, would do again.
My whole family loved this dish! The sauce was too thin, but next time I will try putting some Arrowroot in to thicken it up more.
I wish I didn't love this recipe so much, as I know its unhealthy! Its just so easy, and fast! This is my go to recipe when I'm at the store trying to figure out what to cook for tonight's dinner because I can always remember the ingredients off the top of my head. I use Chicken Tenders instead of breasts, because I've never been good at pan-frying breasts without burning the outsides. Its great with bread to sop up the excess sauce and some steamed broccoli or green beans.
Quick, easy, and especially good. My family gave it 5*'s so we'll make this often. My husband loves cutting back the rosemary bush too.
