Rosemary is a great source of phytonutrients which neutralize harmful free radicals, preventing them from wreaking havoc on our insides—and even on our skin—buh-bye blemishes, hello glowing, rejuvenated skin! In fact, rosemary seems to boost immunity and improve circulation thanks to being a rich source of these antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. With improved circulation, your muscles, heart, extremities and skin swiftly receive nutrients and oxygen.

More rosemary perks? It’s rich in vitamins like folic acid, vitamin A, vitamin C and iron! So instead of reading about it, we’ll let ya whip up this delish Rosemary Chicken with your new favorite herb! 😉

 

Rosemary Chicken

We tend to make the spice mixture and rub it on the chicken the night before and allow the chicken to sit in the marinade overnight. It only needs to sit in the rub for about 15 minutes, but we find this makes it so easy when we are hungry; it’s all ready to go in the skillet!

Serves: 4

 

Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breast (roughly 3 ounces after cooking)

2 sprigs rosemary, leaves only, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

2 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp olive oil

salt to taste

fresh cracked pepper to taste

 

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients, other than the chicken, on a cutting board. Mash all ingredients so they form a paste and then stir in the olive oil until evenly mixed. Then, using your hands, rubs the mixture over the chicken. If you are making this the night before as we do, simply place the chicken in a bowl and cover and refrigerate. Otherwise, allow the breasts to absorb the rub for about 15 minutes.
  1. Lightly spritz a medium sized skillet with oil and heat over medium heat, flipping sides after about five minutes. Cook the chicken until it’s done and cooked through. Serve with lots of veggies and about ½ cup to 1 cup of your favorite whole grain! Enjoy!
