Turn to the flavors of the Mediterranean in this aromatic chicken dish, scented with fresh dill and garlic.

Ingredients

1
lemon
1 1/2
teaspoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/4
teaspoon salt
Dash pepper
1 1/2
teaspoons olive oil
1
small garlic clove, minced
2
boneless skinless chicken breast halves

Directions

  • 1 Cut 2 thin slices from lemon; set aside. Squeeze 2 teaspoons lemon juice from remaining lemon into small bowl. Add rosemary, salt, pepper, oil and garlic; mix well.
  • 2 Add chicken breast halves; turn to coat. Arrange chicken on broiler pan. Top each with lemon slice.

Tips  

Rosemary is a needle-shaped, aromatic, grayish-green herb with bold flavor. It is widely grown and used in the Mediterranean area.

If you cannot obtain fresh rosemary, use 3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary.

To chop fresh rosemary, strip needles from stems and chop finely. Store extra rosemary sprigs in a plastic food storage bag in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Accompany this chicken with Mixed Vegetables and rice pilaf.
