"I am not sure what I did, but this sauce was much too thin to serve with the chicken. I followed the recipe exact. I do not think I will make this again."

"I liked the rosemary sauce, but it took about double the time for my chicken to cook than stated in the recipe. I will have to slice my chicken thinner next time."
