"Simple and tasty. I used dried rosemary both in the dish and as the garnish. I salted the chicken after I cooked it. Also great grilled."

"Delicious! Marinated for 2-3 hours. Chicken was super moist and tasted fantastic! I will definitely make this again! I used 8 pieces of chicken instead of 6."
