Lemon-Herb Grilled Chicken


I don’t know about you, but I had a great Mother’s Day! I was greeted with breakfast in bed by my children and husband. My breakfast consisted of pancakes, sausage, eggs, and juice. My oldest son convinced my husband to put cheese in the scambled eggs and I have to tell you, they were the best. Of course they wanted to take a picture of their masterpiece before it was presented to me in hopes I would put it on my blog. So, how can I not. I was delicious and very appreciated.

My husband also cooked dinner for me, my mother, and his mother. It ended up to be an equal effort. He made the jello salad and cooked the chicken on the grill. I did the marinade for the chicken, cooked oven roasted potatoes, and made cornbread (from a Marie Callendar’s mix), along with honey butter. We also had canned veggies heated up in the microwave. Then my father-in-law brought strawberry shortcake for dessert. The chicken marinade was a recipe I saw on a local televison show called “Good Things Utah” and it turned out delicious. However, in my hurry to get the marinate on the chicken before our church that day I made a mistake with the recipe. I missed the part about blending the marinade in my blender. I just mixed it all up with a wire wisk. It still turned out great, but if I had blended it we would not have been eating the large pieces of the dried rosemary. So if you give this a try, make sure to use your blender.

Combine all ingredients, except chicken in blender and blend well. Pour over chicken and marinate for 4-8 hours. Cook on grill until breasts are done.
