lemon rosemary chicken

Although this meal may not seem like anything special, let me tell you, we just came up with a remarkable marinade for our chicken. As well as a new love for grilled shallots!

When it is this hot and humid outside, the last thing you want to do is turn on your stove, or grill. That’s why grilling is perfect for the summer. And that is also why this meal is perfect for the hot nights – you can grill it all.

Keep reading for this summer time special…

Ingredients for the chicken marinade:
bundle of fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions for the chicken marinade:
1. Bring 3 tablespoons of water to a boil, add a handful of rosemary to the pot. Cover, and turn off the heat and set aside for 3 minutes.
2. Using a Nutribullet, or a blender, combine the water and rosemary with the garlic, lemon juice, and  olive oil.
3. Blend together and there you have your marinade.
4. Let your chicken sit in the marinade for a couple hours (at least a half hour).
5. Stick on the grill and cook for 10 minutes, turning once.
6. Enjoy!

Ingredients for grilled shallots:
olive oil
salt and pepper, we like Krazy Salt.
