Rosemary Lemon Roasted Chicken Recipe

Lemon Chicken 5

We had our first family dinner in the new house last night and it was yummy! My mom came over and did all the cooking (while I photographed her pretty creation, thanks mom!) which was a nice treat. She combined a couple different recipes she found online and came up with the tastiest end product. Rosemary and lemon is one of my favorite combinations! Hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did!
