how to get dinner on the table without a lot of fuss.  So, it’s July and summer is in full swing.  As many of my clients (and family) know, I love to use marinades and then broil or grill poultry, meats and seafood.  I wanted to quickly share a marinade that has only four ingredients.  If you’re as busy as I am in the afternoons, this is a great one to set up the night before and then marinate overnight.

Lemon-Rosemary Marinade

  • 3 large lemons, washed and cut in half
  • 1/2 Cup fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced

You can add coarse or Kosher salt and fresh, ground black pepper to taste.  Of course, that would make it six ingredients instead of just four.  Squeeze juice from lemon halves inside zipper top bag and then add the lemon halves.  Mix the remaining ingredients inside the bag.  Add 3 to 4lbs of chicken to the marinade inside the bag and marinate 4 hours or overnight in your refrigerator. 

The next day, you’ll be able to easily grill your chicken when it’s time for dinner.  Just add side dishes as appropriate.  Super easy.
