Have you ever purchased a roasted chicken from the grocery store, get it home, and have to scape the herbs off of the top of the chicken, because the herbs were burnt and bitter? By brushing the rosemary mixture over the chicken and baking it for only 15 minutes, you add flavor to your chicken, and keep the herbs tasting fresh and delicious.
