This dinner is seriously amazing. It’s one of my favorites for a few reasons. First being that it’s crazy simple to make and you only get a couple dishes dirty in the process.

Secondly… this dish is full of crazy awesome flavor. Lemon, garlic, rosemary, thyme, sage… it’s heavenly.

Back when I lived in Canada I planted a rosemary bush right outside my front door. Every time I passed by I would brush my hand across the bush and then smell my fingers. The smell of fresh rosemary is my favorite. So the other day when I got to craving that delicious rosemary, I decided to make some rosemary chicken.

I drove to the store to buy some (I need to plant my herb garden this spring), and all I could find was a package of “poultry herbs,” which included thyme, sage and a few sprigs of rosemary. I picked up the last package and headed for the chicken.

On my way I grabbed a few lemons, a head of garlic and a bag of baby red potatoes.

When I got to the chicken I found a large package of chicken legs for just $4!! My kids are huge fans of chicken legs (and so am I), so I grabbed that. Chicken thighs or bone-in chicken breast would work for this recipe as well.

I browned the chicken legs in a large skillet before placing them on my roasting pan.

**In order to skip getting an extra pan dirty, just lay your roasting pan over two burners and brown the chicken right in the roasting pan before finishing it off in the oven! I couldn’t do this because I have an induction cooktop and my roasting pan wouldn’t work. Bummer.

Add the chicken along with the potatoes to the roasting pan and drizzle the garlic and herb infused lemon mixture all over the chicken and potatoes.

It’s seriously such a beautiful dish. Perfect for entertaining too!

I like to lay the lemon slices on top of the chicken, or as close as possible to give ultimate flavor.

But my favorite is the roasted garlic… you see those smashed garlic cloves in there? When roasted they become so delicious and perfect on top of the tender potatoes and chicken.

  1. I have always admired bloggers that put full page long post with a series of pictures of the progression of the dish and this recipe is a good example of why. It pulled me in right from the beginning and by the time I got to the end I just wanted to head for the kitchen and dig out some chicken and get started. I mean is there anymore classic a chicken pairing then lemon. And roasting it this way is just going to give you the perfect blend of crispy skin and tender juice meat on the inside. Way to get my kitchen muse sparked can’t wait for your next recipe and will most definitely be back to sample.Thanks for sharing,Christine
