Great recipe! As others have said the onions did not caramelize. They were just barely cooked even a little crunchy. Next time I'll try moving them to the bottom of the pan after the first 15 minutes and see if that works. Otherwise I'll sautee them first as another reviewer suggested. I used 3 chicken breast halves 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp. salt-free Cajun seasoning 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 heaping tsp fresh rosemary a moderate amount of salt and a large Spanish onion. The flavor was fantastic! Read More

I love rosemary chicken and make several different recipes regularly but I won't be adding this to my repertoire. By the time I finished tweaking with the recipe it was more mine that than the original! Read More

I used this recipe to roast a whole chicken I tossed some extra oil and seasoning on some potatos and onion and put them in the pan too. My kids raved about the chicken and my dad and I fought over who got the last potato! Two thumbs up! Read More

Enjoyed the taste of the chicken. However when I prepare it again I will saute the onions first before putting them on the chicken. They were not caramelized when I followed the recipe as written. Read More

Fantastic! We'll be making this often going forward. I did add more oil and I also added a little ( 2 tbsp) balsamic vinegar. I mixed it all up in a baggie so I could cover it easily. I also sauteed the onions in advance. I'm sure this would even be better if it marinated a bit. Anyway great recipe - you can't go wrong as long as you like rosemary. Read More

Delicious! I added about a half cup of white cooking wine as well made it extra delicious and moist! I also sprinkled a tiny bit if paprika and fresh chopped garlic on top. Thanks for the recipe! My boyfriend loved it as well! I may make it again for a dinner party! So easy! Read More

Very Good. Instead of chopping the onion I sliced them and cooked them in some butter until carmalized. I also added a clove of minced garlic. It turned out very moist and flavorful. Great recipe! Read More

Sauteed double the onion beforehand and added some cubed potatoes. Had to cook for about 45 min to get the potatoes soft. Chicken was very flavourful and yummy! Read More

This was fairly good. I was looking for a way to use cajun seasoning and this was a pretty good idea. It just didn't taste quite the way I expected. I did sautee the onions first until golden brown then put on top of chicken & baked. This recipe is decent but not great. Read More
