Expert Tips

Rosemary is a needle-shaped, aromatic, grayish-green herb with bold flavor. It is widely grown and used in the Mediterranean area.

If you cannot obtain fresh rosemary, use 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary.

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.

Accompany this chicken with Green Giant® Mixed Vegetables and rice pilaf.
