  • “This is a simple baked chicken recipe.The chicken was moist and flavorful but the meat was not as quite as flavorful as I thought it might have been given all the onions, garlic, and rosemary (gotta be a way to get more flavor into the meat).There were, however, lots of wonderful onions to spoon over the chicken which was quite flavorful with the garlic, rosemary, and olive oil.I will definetely make this recipe again possibly placing some onion, garlic, and rosemary beneath the skin of the chicken parts to infuse more flavor into the meat.Thanks for a lovely recipe!”

  • “This did make the kitchen smell wonderful. Onions, garlic and rosemary….can’t get much better than that!Thanks.”

  • “I used shallots instead of garlic/onions. This was terriffic and my picky hubby even gave it a “good?” so that’s a pretty high rating from him. Next time I’ll buy more shallots and use more rosemary. Mmmmm”

  • “juicy, smells great when cooking. meat was good but not very flavorful. whole dish was delicious though especially the crispy onions.”

  • “This was so tasty & sooooo easy to make!”

  • “Very good recipe.For additional flavor, I seasoned the chicken with Spike, any salt seasoning would be good.I added more of the ingredients and put extra onions and garlic with rosemary and olive oil under the skin.I covered the chicken with the remaining onion mixture and marinated it for 3-4 hours.It had alot of flavor.”

  • “I used chicken thighs with the bone in, and reduced the recipe accordingly.I also took Caryn’s advice & put some of the mixture (making sure that I had heaps of garlic & rosemary) under the skin of the chicken – this definitely made the chicken more flavoursome.The meat was tender & the softened onions were yummy.It was slightly on the bland side for me, I think that I would maybe add a bit of lemon zest under the skin for a bit of pep next time.Thanks for the recipe.”
