(Slightly Spicy) Rosemary Lemon Chicken Breasts

I like to cook boneless, skinless chicken breasts since they cook fast and have less fat and fewer calories than chicken with skin. However, they can be a bland. This Rosemary Lemon Chicken fixes that issue by adding spice and a little heat. That makes sure the chicken breasts have lots of flavor!
