Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



First of all an apology, it wasn't till more than half way through cooking that I realized I forgot to add the mushrooms and the broth but the end result was still terrific. I used 3 Maryland cuts of chicken (which is what we call the thigh and drumstick being kept intact), sprinkled with the spice mix, browned off the chicken, added the lemon juice and put the quartered lemon pieces and rosemary in the pan and then put in a 175C fan forced oven and roasted for 55 minutes and the chicken was beautifully moist and full of flavour, I think my saving grace was by using the Maryland instead of breast as the Maryland is fattier it did not dry out. Thank you QueenBea for a delicious main, made for Alphabet Soup tag game.

Chicken is often our main course, we love chicken and we love variety. The addition of chili powder and turmeric did just that to your delicious Skillet Rosemary Chicken. Didn't have an oven proof pan on hand,prepared on stove top, deglazed pan adding all to a small uncovered roaster for the oven finish. Delicious and one that is a company quality meal! Another to my Favourites Cookbook.
