This recipe for Rosemary Chicken with Lemon is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared it in 2010.
Instead of grilling, can you bake in oven? If so, what temperature do you recommend and how long? Thank you!
Ashley, I haven’t tried that so not sure –if you experiment I hope you’ll share your results along with the cook time :-)
Don’t know how I missed this recipe on the website, but I bought your book and found it there.
Your cookbook is FANTASTIC!
I measured out all the ingredients and prepped the chicken in the dish. My 4yr old and 5yr old sons did the rest. They felt so accomplished making the marinade and devoured the chicken after we grilled it. Your recipes taste delicious, are so healthy and easy enough to allow me to include my children in on the prep. So AWESOME!
Aubrey, thanks so much for your kind words and glad to hear the cookbook is FANTASTIC and that you and your children are enjoying it :-)
This was very tasty! My 5 year old kept asking for more. Will become a staple for us. Thank you very much!
So glad you and yours enjoyed this recipe Susan!
Wonderful but needs a hint of sweetness. Will make again with some honey or agave. Stay tuned.
The chicken is marinating in the fridge now. Excited to grill it up for dinner later tonight. I used chicken thighs instead of breasts & added the zest if two lemons.
Noticed you’re a Davis native.. So am i, such an exciting coincidence :)
WOW! This was SO good. I used a mixture of lime and lemon juice, so I added 1 T. of tequila (what? it reminded me of a margarita :p) I also used dried rosemary instead, and let it marinate in the fridge for 3.5 hours. SO Simple SO delicious. Elana, you’ve done it again!
This turned out great! I’m usually horrible at cooking chicken but this was moist and tasty! :->
You really shouldnt wash your chicken

Hi Elana, I know what a pantry is but my 7 year old daughter (she says she’s not 7, she’s 6 but she will be 7 soon!) wants to know why you call your blog Elana’s pantry. I’ve told her its because pantry is like a food store but she wants to hear from you :-). Thanks for your wonderful recipes – you’ve brought gluten-free alive for me!
