Also, this flavour combo is amazing on the grill! Check out my friend David’s recipe for Grilled Lemon Rosemary Chicken.

Lemon and rosemary are a superb union and make your chicken much more fancy schmancy. And yes, schmancy is a word. It means very, very fancy. ๐Ÿ˜‰

How to make this recipe:

Used the juice of one lemon, olive oil, freshly chopped rosemary and sea salt and pepper.

Shake it all together in a small mason jar. Easy peasy.

marinade in a mason jar.

Season the chicken with sea salt and pepper and then pour on the marinade. With your hands, give everything a good rub down, then give your hands a good rub down with some soap and water. Why? Because salmonella sucks, that’s why!

Pop the chicken into the fridge and let it sit for a minimum of three hours for all the lemony goodness to absorb.

The result is juicy, tender chicken with a nice hit of citrus. The rosemary added that beautiful woodsy aroma.

Side note: Taking these images of the chicken was like aromatherapy!

I think I may start wearing rosemary as perfume. ๐Ÿ™‚
