Moist & juicy, bone-in chicken breasts

Author Notes: I found this in a Seattle Times article online. I was cooking Ian Knauer's WONDERFUL Balsamic Glazed Ribs, found here at Food 52, which require a hot oven (425F). This recipe not only took advantage of that hot oven but the breasts came out great- crisp skin, juicy meat. I can envision making these and roasting veggies at the same time. erinclancymiami

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 4 bunches bone in, split chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking sheet and wire rack with cooking spray.
  2. Combine the rosemary, garlic, lemon juice and zest in a small bowl. Gently lift the skin off each breast and spread the rosemary mixture on the breast; replace the skin. Rub the olive oil over the skin and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Place the chicken skin-side up on the wire rack.
  3. Roast in the middle of the oven until a thermometer inserted into the thickest portion of the breast registers 165 degrees, about 34 to 38 minutes.
