Italian Lemon Rosemary Chicken

October 15, 2015 (Last Updated: October 15, 2021)

Italian Lemon Rosemary Chicken is a simple dish with simple-to-find ingredients of boneless skinless chicken breasts,  lemon slices, fresh-cut Rosemary, white wine, and herbs and spices all cooked in one Dutch Oven from start to finish for less clean-up time.

I love a good simple ingredient dish; this Italian Lemon Rosemary Chicken is a prime example of how a few simple ingredients, white wine, and fresh herbs can turn a boring chicken dinner into a fabulous tasting meal with minimal clean-up.


Italian Lemon Rosemary Chicken This is the time of year. I look forward to living here in Central Florida; the weather starts calming down, and trust me. I want to enjoy my days with little or no humidity. Living here all year round with our summers hitting 96-100+ degrees with full humidity is no vacation for Florida residents. So right now, we are sitting at a non-humid 88 degrees, and I  remember why I moved here; it’s gorgeous weather in the early fall.

Our lemons here grow off and on all year long; however, the primary season is late fall through early spring. Since my lemon tree has some excellent-looking lemons, we will use them today in our Italian Lemon Rosemary Chicken.

I’m lucky enough to have fresh herbs growing in my herb garden all year long, another excellent ingredient that we won’t even need to leave the house for, which is perfect. The rest of the ingredients I pretty much have on hand in the pantry and refrigerator, a fabulous win-win situation!

I ask one favor of you when making this recipe; use a white table wine you would drink. Cooking wine isn’t an ingredient I even waste money on these days. I have a motto of if I won’t drink it, I sure won’t eat it. The taste of cooking wine and table wine is day and night, not even close. You don’t need to invest in a super expensive bottle, just one you would drink.

    Just saw this on Fridgg and had to pop over to your blog. I seriously love all of these flavors & the fact that it’s a one-pot meal. I am pinning for later to try while my rosemary plant is thriving. 😉
