Roasted Rosemary Chicken

Serves 2 hungry boyfriends in 45 minutes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 chicken breasts, bone-in skin on
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided and softened (zap in microwave for a few seconds if you need to)
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Line a baking dish with aluminum foil.  Mix together garlic and rosemary.  Set aside.  Place chicken in dish, skin side up and pat dry with paper towel.  Gently loosen up skin using your fingers creating a pocket.  Be careful not to pierce the skin.  Evenly spread garlic/rosemary mixture into the pocket (under the skin) of each chicken.  Rub chicken with butter and drizzle with olive oil.  Bake for 30-40 minutes, until an instant read thermometer reads 165 degrees F.

2.  Serve your boyfriend:  This dish goes great with a side of garlic bread (see previous recipe).
