Rosemary Lime Chicken

Morning Friends! It’s Thursday and the weekend is fast-approaching! I swear weeks go faster in the summer!

First of all, I hope you like the new layout of the blog! I was stressed about the old layout for awhile but could never put my finger on what the problem was. I’m pretty sure that it was way too colorful for my liking, but I’m not really even sure if that was the problem. All I know is, I was having issues with it. So, it’s gone! I feel much better now. At least for the time being.

Second of all, I want to share the recipe for the chicken that we had last night for dinner. It has been a staple in our dinners and was suggested to me by my friend, Carla. The flavors of the lime and rosemary give a tang to the chicken that takes it from boring old chicken to moist juicy delicous chicken.

This chicken is delicious when just baked in the oven, but if you grill it in a foil packet?
Oh. Em. Gee.
I have never had chicken so juicy!

Oh! Another awesome thing about foil packets!?
No Cleanup!
I am all about no cleanup!

Rosemary Lime Chicken

Ingredients:

4 skinless, bonless chicken breasts

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

2 tablespoons rosemary

1 tablespoon lime zest

2 tablespoons olive oil

juice of one lime

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat grill on medium-high heat.

Prepare each chicken breast on it’s own piece of aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, mix together the parsley, rosemary, and lime zest. Brush each side of the chicken breast with olive oil and rub with herb mixture. Squeeze 1/4 of lime juice over chicken breast, allowing some to pool in the foil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, to taste.

Bring sides of foil together and fold down two times and crinkle ends to close. Allow some room in the packet to allow juices to marinate and cook the chicken. Grill on a close grill for 11-13 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

I am all over this chicken thing. And this grill thing.

Can we please make summer last forever?
