    I used a sprig of Thyme instead of rosemary. And, bacon grease instead of olive oil to avoid Omega 6. Really good chicken and super easy to make

      Is it the one serving has two pieces of thighs? Kinda confusing

        Yes, 2 thighs per serving. You can find the info in the About the Recipe section where it shows the number of servings.

          Soooo good and filling! I also tried with chicken breasts the second go around. Love the flavorful seasoning either way!

            Was very good! I will be making this again, next time using chicken breasts.

                  Not as tasty as I thought it would be.
