Crispy Baked Rosemary Chicken

Crispy Baked Rosemary Chicken

Are you like me and just sometimes crave some crispy chicken? Don’t go through the drive through of your favorite fried chicken joint…try this Crispy Rosemary Chicken. This chicken will be so much more satisfying with more flavor but without the breading. There simply is no need to bread and fry your chicken (which is sooooo messy!) when you can throw this very easy main dish together.

Did you catch that I said “very easy”? I really meant it. Just throw oil, herbs and chicken in a bowl, stir, and bake. The hardest part of this chicken is taking a spoon and basting the chicken at the end (basting is the secret to crispy chicken). Want to make it a full meal? Throw some potatoes and a veg in the oven too! Try this truly simple Crispy Baked Rosemary Chicken this week and let me know what you think. You won’t regret skipping the drive through!
