The heat is certainly on this summer. The stagnant air with its heaviness just wasn't inspiring me to turn on the oven last night, so out to the grill I went!
I found a recipe for a simple baked chicken and borrowed the seasoning idea to make a chicken rub. I added fresh parsley from my herb garden at the very end and it was just the thing to give it that "fresh" taste. I paired this chicken with a pasta dish and a side salad. When I grill chicken, especially when its rubbed with seasoning, I have found the "turning" method and using olive oil keeps the chicken moist and juicy.
ROSEMARY GRILLED CHICKEN
Preparation Time: 20 min
1 tablespoon of dried rosemary
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh flat-leaf parsley (garnish)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Rub the olive oil on all sides of the chicken breasts and then rub the dry seasonings on the chicken breasts.
Grill chicken, turning every 3-5 minutes until done (when the juices run clear or when the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees). Take the chicken off the Grill and garnish with the fresh parsley.
