Rosemary Chicken

A savory rosemary and garlic marinade enhances the chicken breasts in this easy skillet recipe from Veronica Snyder of Waterbury, Connecticut. "I like to garnish the chicken with fresh rosemary sprigs and serve it with rice," she says.

    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.

    I marinated this for 2 days and it was okay. It definitely needed salt and more rosemary.
