Reviews for Lemon Rosemary Chicken
"Not as flavorful as the "real" lemon rosemary chicken"
"How is it Lemon Rosemary Chicken, when there are NO LEMONS USED?"
"Instead of grilling, I sauteed the chicken in a little butter; it was very good. I made a cranberry-orange dipping sauce to accompany them."
