An easy recipe sure to make your recipe file.



We have completely enjoyed our comfort food this winter (just ask my hips). Now, as we have headed into warmer months (it has been in the 80's here) I am longing for light and fresh meals.

One of my family’s favorite summery flavor combinations is rosemary and lemon. It’s so bright and refreshing. We love rosemary-lemon grilled chicken, so I decided to bring that flavor in to the kitchen until I am ready to venture out to the grill.

It’s funny, as soon as the temperatures hit 80 degrees on my outdoor thermometer here in Arizona (Yes, 80!), I was looking for fresh rosemary. Rosemary grows like crazy out in the desert. So naturally we have 6 rosemary bushes that I planted a few years ago in my yard.

They are prolific and have provided me and my friends and neighbors with enough rosemary to last all season. I also dry it so I have that amazing home grown rosemary in my pantry. It is quickly becoming my favorite herb!

I love rosemary on just about everything. I even made a rosemary lemon ice cream a few years ago. The best is combining it with garlic, onions and veggies and you have an amazing dinner!

This one-skillet meal boasts incredible lemon and rosemary flavor absorbed right into the chicken and vegetables, leaving you with amazingly moist and delicious chicken that goes from prep to plate in just 20 minutes.


Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
