Rosemary, Rosemary, Rosemary…

Walked by my huge fragrant Rosemary bush today and decided, whatever I make today will have to have lots of Rosemary!


I had 3 nice fat chicken breasts in the fridge so decided that was it, tonight we are having Garlic Rosemary & Lemon Chicken!

Out came the following ingredients:

  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup of rosemary
  • 1 lemon zest and juice
  • salt and pepper
  • chicken stock
  • 2 1/2 lbs of chicken breasts

I sliced the chicken breast in big thick slices, the thicker you cut them, the juicier they stay :-). Placed my chicken in a pan.


After peeling my garlic cloves, I used my handy dandy garlic press and added that to the chicken, together with a 1/4 cup of rosemary and rind of a lemon.

Drizzled it with some aromatic rosemary olive oil and tossed it nicely before putting it into a 450 deg F oven for about 20 minutes.


After 20 minutes, I pulled it out, gave it a nice toss, added 1/2 cup of chicken stock and juice of 1 lemon and put it back in the oven. Turned oven off and let it rest in there for another 5 minutes.


While the chicken was resting, I placed my newly discovered bag of petite sweet potatoes by Green Giant in the microwave for 8 minutes and presto! Dinner is ready for the lovely hubby and I <3

Best part of it is that for once, I have leftovers to take to work for lunch tomorrow, now there we have it, 2 meals for the price of 1 🙂


PS: Next time I make this I am going to quickly sear the chicken to give it a little more color as it looked a bit anemic for my taste!
