I don't know if it is good in chicken, but its great on it. Thats what I think rosemary goes best with, is chicken. I make a chicken porabella soup that is essentially chicken, portabellas, tomato sauce and a handful of fresh rosemary. You can eat it over pasta, or alone as soup with parm. cheese. Everyone loves it. Start using that rosemary! I'm gonna grow some of my own fresh this year.
Yep, I've had the same experience. They leave the rosemary, catnip, onions, garlic, sage, and oregano alone. They do pick at the thyme sometimes.
The LOVE carrot tops, though, and I'm afraid they'll get into my parsley for the same reason (didn't have any last year).
