Number of Servings: 10


    5 Chicken Breasts, no skin or bone
    Lemon Juice from 2 lemons
    Zest from the 2 lemons
    Olive Oil, .5 cup
    Kosher Salt, approx. 1 tsp
    Freshly ground Pepper, black, 1 tbsp
    Rosemary, dried, 2 tbsp
    Garlic, 3 cloves finely chopped or minced


Mix all marinade ingredients, measurements are meant to be adjusted to your taste. I grind up the rosemary to make it a little less coarse and to bring out the flavor.
Pour marinade over chicken. Allow chicken to marinate for several hours or overnight. Cook chicken in your preferred manner. We grill and bake it. In the oven at 375 for 30 minutes.

Makes 5 to 10 servings, depending on your hunger level and size of chicken breasts. We make extra and use for salads and wraps.

  • I made this but I am not sure if it was my lemon or what it just didn't have a good lemon flavour for me. I may try it again. - 11/29/08
