Orange Rosemary Chicken with Roasted Green Beans

So easy and so yummy. You can cook for one person or a crowd. My recipe assumes a large (over one pound) boneless, skin on chicken breast for two people. There would be no problem doubling, tripling  or more the recipe. We find about one half pound per person is good but I would allow extra if I was entertaining. I served the orange rosemary chicken with simple roasted green beans. Green beans cleaned and trimmed, tossed with some olive oil salt and pepper. 400 degree oven about 20 minutes. All done!
