A Week Of Herbs - Grilled Rosemary Chicken

I've always told myself, if I plant some herbs I've got to cook with them!  So I have been looking through some recipes that use the herbs I've planted.  My first attempt is Grilled Rosemary Chicken.  It seemed easy enough.

2 skinless, chicken breast halves
1 tsp. finely shredded lime peel
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper

For marinade stir together lime peel, lime juice, rosemary, oil, sugar, garlic, and salt.

In a large ziplock bag place chicken and marinade.  Seal bag and turn to coat chicken.  Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.  Grill chicken uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender and no longer pink.  

We had our Rosemary chicken with baked potatoes and steamed broccoli.  It was yummy!


  1. I love cooking with rosemary! Yumm!

  2. I almost never cook with rosemary…. however now that i think of it , I have not cooked in over a month!

  3. I cook in spurts. Sometimes I will go a week or two without cooking. I'll get really busy and not have time to cook. But I always feel healthier when I am preparing my own meal. You can control what's ending up on your plate:)

  4. That looks so wonderfully tasty! I think it would work marvelously with lamb as well. Rare is the time I cook lamb as a standalone meat (aka, not in a stew, heavy sauce, tagine, etc) without employing rosemary, the two are a taste bud match made in heaven.
