Recipe Time!

I have never posted a recipe on my blog but at the request of my Mom, so she could easily access it and share it around, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes. It’s also a recipe I learned two years ago when I was eating healthy. I’m working on getting back on track. This recipe is so, so good. I can’t remember where I had originally found it (it may have been a Jillian Michaels recipe honestly).  It’s super easy and quick.

Honey-Lemon Marinated Chicken

Ingredients:
¼ cup organic raw honey
¼ cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons vegetable oil (can be substituted by canola)
1 teaspooon crushed rosemary (I picked mine fresh from the garden and minced it up)
1 teaspoon lemon peel, grated
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 organic chicken breasts

Preparation:

Combine all ingredients (except chicken) and mix well.  Marinate the chicken in honey-lemon mixture for 1 hour in a shallow baking dish.  Broil chicken for 5 minutes (I put the broiler on 350) brush with pan droppings, flip chicken, and broil for 5 more minutes. Check if cooked, if not, another five minutes should do. If desired, bring marinade to a boil; simmer 2 minutes.  Strain hot marinade over chicken.
