Garlic-Lemon Rosemary Chicken Breast
Rosemary Chicken Breast
Like me, many folks struggle with eating right. Over time, I have found that eating right does not mean I have to sacrifice taste. During the week I make a batch of this Rosemary Chicken Breast and use it for both lunch and dinner menus.
By the way, it is a great way to get your children to eat right. I also make sure to make enough so that I can make my lunch and their’s in a jiffy during weekdays. This is a fool-proof method that I use to make my lunch-packing easy. I also came up with a formula for the kids’ lunch bags, check out this post I did about that.
Tip: White grape juice is a great substitute for dry white wine. It will add sweetness to your recipes and serves as a good liquid to deglaze your pan. However, to add a punch to your grape juice, mix a tablespoon of vinegar to one cup of grape juice. In addition, if you would like to avoid white wine or juice, you can use vegetable or chicken stock. Substituting stock for other liquids will add flavor to your dishes.
