Lemon Loves Chicken

Here is one more idea for Jamie P. in response to her request for some fancy but light chicken main dishes suitable for entertaining.

Lemon Loves Chicken

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts that have been “filleted” or pounded to be even in thickness
1/3 c. olive oil
Zest of 2 lemons
4 cloves minced garlic
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice
2 tbs. fresh parsley, chopped (I told you all to go buy that mini chopper)
½ tsp. dried, crushed rosemary (I know fresh is good but it gets so woody and sticks in your teeth and who needs that with company coming)
½ tsp. kosher salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients, whisk, then add chicken. Marinate chicken in sauce for an hour or longer in refrigerator. Grill or broil for about 5 minutes each side and serve. This is a very simple recipe, but the fresh lemon, as always, adds a “WOW” factor. I would serve this with fresh asparagus and small red potatoes that have been boiled gently and then tossed with melted butter and a sprinkle of rosemary.
