Rosemary and Lemon Baked Chicken Thighs

The scent of a roasting chicken is one of those smells that can make me sigh out loud.  There is something familiar and comforting about it.  The other day I wasn't able to find an organic whole chicken so I bought some chicken thighs instead.  I took a couple things out from my usual roast chicken recipe and added wine, glorious white wine. Please excuse the picture quality because I've been having to use my cell phone since my big camera is on the mend.
