Lemon, garlic and rosemary chicken

SERVES 4

PREP TIME – 5 MINUTES

MARINATING TIME – 30 MINUTES

COOKING TIME – 10 – 12 MINUTES

 

Ingredients –

1 lemon, zested and juiced

2 garlic cloves, finely grated

2 sprigs Rosemary, leaves picked and finely chopped

2 tbsp olive oillemon-garlic-and-rosemary-chicken

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts

1 bag mixed salad to serve

 

Method –

  1. Put the lemon zest, juice, garlic, rosemary and olive oil into a bowl large enough to hold the chicken breasts and mix together. Season with salt and black pepper.
  2. Slice the chicken breasts in half widthways then open out like a book.
  3. Place into the marinade and mix around until they are all coated then cover and set aside for no more than 30 minutes – any longer and the lemon juice will make the chicken tough.
  4. Heat a BBQ until hot but then let the flames die down or a large frying pan until medium hot, add the chicken breasts 2 at a time and fry for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  5. Repeat with remaining chicken then serve with a mixed salad.
