This recipe for Rosemary Chicken with Lemon is an oldie but goodie from the archives. I first shared it in 2010.
What an easy and delicious chicken recipe. I love rosemary – one of my favorite herbs – and last winter’s unusually cold snap (okay, cold snap for those of us in Dallas – I know you deal with snow all winter!) killed off our bush. Just now have enough growing again to use. I think a big batch grilling session is in order – I could munch on this chicken all week!

Hi Elana! Have a fabulous time at your upcoming book signing. I’m sure it will be a success.
We love rosemary lemon chicken – I make it often, too. It’s so fun to walk outside and cut the rosemary from my bush. All my herbs are doing great but I’m envious of everyone’s zucchini. My novice gardening skills somehow killed off our zucchini plants. I might try again when it cools down – Dallas has a long growing season.

Elana, this post came through before I left work last night, and before I’d planned dinner. I hit the grocery store and made this on my beloved stove-top grill pan, and I’m eating some of the leftovers for lunch right now. This will definitely be a standby for me. THANKS!! You rock, and your recipes bring so much to my world.
Lucy Stevens says
I am assuming that one pound of chicken breast means skinless, boneless – yes?
Elana, Since I don’t grill I would like to do this in my oven with breasts or a whole chicken. Do you have any cooking tips to make it taste juicy and not overdone? I’m good at overcooking my chicken to death. Help! :)
I have found that putting a lemon half or most any fruit ( apple, lime, orange…) in a whole chicken is the best, almost impossible to dry it out. May be the moistest chicken you ever ate.
Erica Reinhart says
Good tip! I dont know what it is but every now and then I get a dry chicken! Hopefully, with your tip, that will not happen anymore :)
Lemon rosemary chicken is truly one of life’s simple pleasures!
So sorry to miss you in Davis…we’re heading south for fun in the sun and sand. I’ll spread the word, tho!
Brandon May says
I was debating on making either lemon chicken, or chicken parmesan tonight. This must be a sign. :)
This looks delicious.

your blog is a splash of fresh air, i love the recipes and everything about it, congratulations! cheers from london
Looks delicious! You could make this with a whole organic chicken too – a more sustainable way of using the bird.
Are you eating your own chickens or are they just for eggs?
