Wow! My husband who was getting sick of chicken on the grill absolutely loved this. I cut the chicken into chunks for kabobs and let it mariate all day. In addition to 1/2 c. lemon juice I used the juice of one whole lemon and lemon zest. I also cut the rosemary down to 1/2 tablespoon and then added FRESH rosemary. I also added some minced garlic, dijon mustard, and worcestershire. This is a definite keeper!
Sorry but I did not like this recipe at all. The chicken was way too "lemony" and the flavor was much too strong. Basically it tasted like lemon-soaked, bland chicken. I did like that I had all the ingredients on hand, but next time I'll cut the lemon juice and add another liquid in its place, along with some herbs and spices.
I cooked the chicken on my newest gadget (a George Foreman grill), and it only took 9 minutes! I only had four hours to marinade the chicken (not overnight). But, it turned out great. My husband thought the chicken was moist and delicious (he even commented on how moist the leftovers were the next day). My eleven month old daughter also gave it two thumbs up. Thanks Barbara for this quick and tasty recipe.
Great recipe!! Be sure to "mash" your rosemary leaves
to cause them to release their aromatics. I use the stems to stick into the meat
and this also release flavor.
I make something very similiar to this recipe and it comes out fabulous! The key is worcestershire sauce. I would put in about 1/4 of a cup and use fresh rosemary rather than dried. Use it liberally. If you bake this rather then grill do not have marinate but I would say to cook it for 45min to an hour. Goes great with couscous!!!
Very good, I use the dry rosemary and pan fryed it....yummy!
Great complments: Corn and garlic dill potatoes
This was delicious! Not kidding. I marinated it for over 24 hours and that was the key. It had a wonderful lemon flavor. I ended up broiling it though instead of grilling. Highly recommend!
I was very surprised that a recipe with such few ingredients would produce something so yummy!! My husband, my 11 year old daughter, and 8 year old son, and myself LOVED this chicken! They asked for it again tomorrow! We cooked it on the BBQ and it was nice and moist,and full of flavour. Served it with a greek salad with creamy dressing. Delicious!! =)
