Description

Lemon and rosemary go together perfectly and chicken is the perfect blank canvas for a bright and flavorful dish. This simple marinade needs only about 30 minutes of resting with the chicken to impart tons of flavor, cooking them on the grill adds a nice smokiness that complements the lemon and rosemary perfectly. This is a great recipe to have on hand when you are doing a cookout but want something other than burgers and hot dogs on the grill.

Ingredients

4 chicken breasts
1 lemon juice (and zest)
2 lemon (cut into cubes)
2 rosemary sprigs (fresh)
olive oil
sea salt
ground black pepper

Directions

1Cut the chicken into large cubes. Place in a bowl with lemon juice, lemon zest, chopped rosemary and a dash of olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.
2Prick the chicken and lemon cubes onto skewers, alternating between the two and cook, on the barbecue preferably, or in the oven.
3Season with salt and pepper before serving.
4If you're lucky enough to have some rosemary in your garden, do your skewers with rosemary branches: remove all the rosemary needle-leaves except for the ones at the end of the branches. Soak the branches for a few minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill, then skew the chicken with the moist branches, and cook it. Top impression factor guaranteed.
