The Easiest Baked Rosemary Chicken

We do a lot of baked chicken in this house. Don’t get me wrong, you know my love for pasta and ALL the carbs…but I can’t eat like that all day every day. (Much as I would love to do just that!)

I’m always trying to think of fresh new ways to keep chicken interesting, and this Rosemary Chicken hits all the marks! I love bringing you fun chicken recipes because it’s something we eat so much of in our home!

Check out my easy lemon chicken, blackened chicken, and chicken piccata milanese. You’ll also love my Baked Chicken Breast recipe and this incredibly easy chicken fajita bowl!

What I love about this fresh and fragrant Lemon Rosemary Chicken is that it’s so easy to throw together. One pan, a few minutes of prep, and you’re golden. Just like this baked chicken and veggies! (Seriously though, do you see how juicy and delicious this looks?) Let’s make dinner!

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Ingredients

To make this Rosemary Chicken Recipe, you’ll need the following:

  • Chicken Breasts – Boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
  • Olive Oil – Use good olive oil for the best flavor.
  • White Wine – White cooking wine will do just fine. You’ll find it in the salad aisle of your grocery.
  • Lemon Juice – From fresh squeezed lemons or out of the bottle, your choice.
  • Rosemary – Fresh or dried! A general rule of thumb is to use 3 times as much fresh rosemary as you would need dried to get the same great flavor.
  • Black Pepper – I like to use pepper from a grinder set for thick flakes. It adds texture and the perfect bold crunchy touches of spice.
  • Garlic – I use minced garlic found in the produce section of your grocer, but you can use fresh cloves if you prefer.

How to Make Rosemary Chicken and Veggies

This recipe is foolproof. It’s my favorite way to make chicken, simply because I can count on this temperature and timing to come out beautifully every single time! 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a shallow baking dish or pan, brush both sides of chicken breast with olive oil, white wine and lemon juice mixture
  3. Sprinkle with seasoning, coating if you choose
  4. Bake 20 minutes for smaller chicken breasts, up to 30 minutes for larger chicken breasts
  5. Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes as it will continue to cook and seal in juices after it is removed from oven

What to Serve With Rosemary Chicken

As you can see, this recipe bakes beautifully on its own, but I love to throw in some veggies with my baked chicken. When you’re busy in the kitchen and struggling to get dinner on the table, nothing is better than a dinner that comes together in one dish.

This chicken and veggies is a success story based in simplicity. Brush your chicken breasts with the herbs and oils (right there on the pan) and you’re all set! If you’d like a complete meal in one pan, simply add your veggies to the same pan. For this sheet pan dinner, I added fresh green beans and cute little colorful baby potatoes.

  • Add sliced baby potatoes to the same pan as your chicken, they will cook for the same length. 
  • At the halfway point in your cooking, pull the pan out and add your veggies. In this example, I used fresh green beans. They don’t need quite as long to cook so I added them in for the last 10-15 minutes.

Is Baked Chicken Healthy? 

The simple definitive answer? Yes. Baked chicken is a healthy protein choice because it’s low calorie, low fat and it’s even Whole 30 and Keto-friendly (when you eliminate the white wine). It’s the perfect skinny solution to your weeknight dinner dilemmas! When making Baked Chicken and Veggies, you get a nice well rounded meal!

The best part? You won’t even know you’re missing those calories! When chicken is this juicy and delicious, you won’t miss a thing.

Ingredients

  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp white wine {can use cooking wine}
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp rosemary dried

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  • In a baking dish, brush both sides of chicken breast with olive oil and sprinkle on seasoning.
  • Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • Allow chicken to rest for 10 minutes to continue to cook. Slice or dice.

Notes

This recipe works with fresh or dried rosemary. If using fresh, use 3x the amount of dried because dried is significantly more potent by measurement. 
If your chicken breasts are large, up your baking time to 30 minutes.
If you'd like to add fresh green beans and baby potatoes to your rosemary chicken sheetpan:
  • Add sliced baby potatoes to the same pan as your chicken, they will cook for the same length. 
  • At the halfway point in your cooking, pull the pan out and add your veggies. In this example, I used fresh green beans. They don't need quite as long to cook so I added them in for the last 10-15 minutes.
