Fresh Rosted Rosemary Apple Chicken

Since my Valentines day consisted of teaching, wodding, then training at the gym I was on the hunt for a delicious meal I could assemble and have the Mr. put in the oven when he arrived home. I came across this recipe and WOW! So easy, so delicious. We decided that this should be a weekly meal for quite awhile. The apples absorb the balsamic and rosemary flavors, and the chicken is tender and full of flavor. We devoured it so quickly I didn't take an after picture- once you make it you will see why. :)

Rosemary Apple Chicken
1 whole chicken (2-3 pounds)
¼ cup olive oil *
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon sea salt
4 apples, cored and sliced
4 sprigs rosemary

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Rinse the chicken, pat dry with a paper towel and place in a 9x12 inch glass baking dish breast side up. Under the chicken, place the whole springs of rosemary. Pour oil and vinegar over the chicken and sprinkle with salt. Cut up apples removing the cores and place around the chicken.

Bake for 90 mins or until browned on the outside

Remove from oven and enjoy!

*I did make some modifications to the oil since grapeseed oil is bad for you.


  1. Great recipe! Hubby commented how good it was before I even had a chance to ask him what he thought. A keeper for sure!

  2. I am so glad! I am making it again this weekend. :)

  3. Why is grape seed oil bad for you?

    1. One of the main reasons is it is high in Omega 6- here is a great explination:

  4. Thank you so much. Your blog is great and your recipes sound delicious. I was just told to eat a paleo diet and can't wait to try your recipes.
