    This recipe turned out awesome! Everybody in the house loved it. The chicken was moist and very tender. I used 2 sticks of butter and I’m happy I did. A lot of the butter evaporated in the oven. Overall great recipe, would make again
    Chicken was a little tough even after cutting the breast into tenders I used Italian seasoning garlic minced and powder and onion powder and extra butter sauce was delicious poured it over some potatoes I had sliced and made in water but like fried potatoes only no oil they were amazing

    Delicious!! I used two sticks of butter when I made this. I seasoned my chicken with salt, pepper and some dry zesty Italian dressing. After I melted the butter and the garlic was fragrant, I put in some Italian seasoning and parsley in the butter and poured it over the chicken. I did not use the rosemary. So so so much flavor, loved it. Will make again

    I made this without the cheese and I used parsley instead of rosemary since I didn’t have rosemary on hand. It’s very yummy and easy to make!

    It was great!! I substituted thyme for rosemary cause that’s what I had. But it was very delicious and not at all difficult.

    This was absolutely delicious! I rarely make recipes without a few tweaks so I'll tell you how I made it. I doubled the amount of butter and used Herb De Provence and parsley instead of rosemary. After I cooked the chicken I used the remaining sauce to cook 3 spiralized zucchini. Once those were cooked (I like the "noodles" soft but not mushy) I added the chicken back in and topped it with Italian cheese in addition to about 2 tbsp of shredded parmesan and warmed it just until the cheese was melted. It made for a wonderfully moist and flavorful meal. Next time I make this, and there will be a next time, I think I'll cut down just a bit on the butter by using 1 1/2 sticks and mushrooms would be a wonderful add in to this dish!

    This was a very delicious meal. I left the cheese out because my dad is lactose intolerant.

    It was so yummy, I used already minced garlic 1/2 a teaspoon per clove that the recipe called for and I changed the Rosemary with parsley and cilantro and I added a little white vinegar to the chicken before baking it and adding the garlic buttered mixture

    Very simple, very filling. Used chicken broth to boil wild rice for bedding and side of peas. A+ dish

    I didn't have enough butter but I used less and it turned out fine. I also added some Lemon Pepper seasoning and a juice of 1 lemon which really made it. It was great!

    Solid recipe. The cheese is indispensable. I used "Italian seasoning" in place of the rosemary. We also added some fresh squeezed lemon juice at the end, and I think it made a positive difference.

    I added the juice of 1 lemon to the sauce, as I found the original recipe slightly bland. The kids loved it and asked me to make it again sometime:)
