Chicken with Rosemary-Onion Sauce

“This is a great dish to serve guests because it tastes like you fussed,” writes Donna Roberts of Shumway, Illinois. “There is nothing more aromatic or flavorful than chicken with rosemary.”

    This is being added to my list of things to make regularly. Served with mashed potatoes and steamed green beans, it was a meal that the Mr. went back for seconds AND wants the leftovers in his lunchbox tomorrow.

    Had a good flavor, but for some reason it did not "wow" me.... I will, however, give it another try. Hopefully it will be better the second time around!

    Very tasty, healthy and so easy. Uses ingredients that most people already have on hand. Will definitely be making this again and again!
