So, today's recipe comes from Annie's Eats, for Lemon Chicken.
Now, I have to admit: I love the way some herbs smell, but I haven't discovered a way that I really like eating them very often. For that reason alone, I'm giving this a YES, PLEASE! It allowed me to use some of the beautiful herbs Dad grows, and we all loved the result!
I think the biggest reason is that it doesn't over-do the herbs. And because they're in the marinade, not just on the chicken.
This is a really lemony dish. We love lemon around here; this savory application really was enjoyed by everyone, which is a little unusual. :D
I served this with basmati rice (one of my FAVORITE rices!!), which I cooked with lemon zest. When it was fully cooked, I added more lemon zest and some basil. That right there's worth the price of admission! :D With a tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad, it was a delightful meal.
I hope you'll try this! It didn't take long to put together the marinade at all. The reason my photo looks so different is that we didn't use chicken with skin. We don't do that around here much. ;) But you can see that the legs, which did have skin, did brown beautifully like the original photo. I enjoyed doing the platter presentation! I do love the smell of rosemary. :D
OK, I'm outta here! Have a BLESSED day, my friend! And let me know when you try something new!!!
