Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Rosemary is a needle-shaped, aromatic, grayish-green herb with bold flavor. It is widely grown and used in the Mediterranean area.
  • tip 2
    If you cannot obtain fresh rosemary, use 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary.
  • tip 3
    To chop fresh rosemary, strip needles from stems and chop finely. Store extra rosemary sprigs in a plastic food storage bag in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • tip 4
    Accompany this chicken with Mixed Vegetables and rice pilaf.
