How to Make Juicy Roasted Chicken
This roasted rosemary chicken comes together in three simple steps. Just marinade, bread, and bake for a hearty meal any night.
- Whisk together the lemon, chicken broth, white wine, and 1 tablespoon of the flour until it is smooth and no lumps remain. Set aside.
- Mix ¼ cup of the flour, garlic, paprika, black pepper, and rosemary in a small dish.
- Beat egg white and water in a separate dish and set aside.
- Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel and dredge in the seasoned flour mixture. Dip chicken into the egg mixture and then back into the flour mixture, making sure each piece is evenly coated.
Brown & Bake:
- Brown chicken evenly in a skillet over medium heat with a little oil or bacon grease. Remove chicken and set aside.
- Pour lemon juice marinade into the pan and cook down until it is thick and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
- Place veggies of your choice in the bottom of a greased casserole dish and top with cooked chicken breasts or thighs. Pour sauce over the top.
- To bake, cover casserole dish with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil and cook an additional 10 minutes.
Since the meat is thicker in some places, an easy-to-read meat thermometer will help determine if the chicken is completely cooked. Place the thermometer in the thickest part of the breast or thigh, it’s done when the internal temp reaches 165°F.
If the chicken is cooked with other vegetables, remove and let ‘rest’ about 10 minutes before serving.
