About this recipe: I love the smell and taste of fresh rosemary. As soon as I get the chance to add some, I go for it. Maybe a little too much sometimes!


Serves: 4 

  • 3 lemons
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • a few sprigs fresh rosemary

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Squeeze 3 lemons. Pour the juice into a bowl and add the olive oil. Add the fresh rosemary. Add the chicken breasts and spoon over the lemon-olive oil marinade.
  2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add chicken breasts from the bowl and cook for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Pour over the marinade and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

So easy, so healthy... we love this recipe! Serve with a green salad and some oven chips or even couscous and that's it! - 05 Sep 2011


Quick, easy and really delicious. I shall make this often. Ate with yesterday's left over new potatoes browned in butter and olive oil, and a crispy salad. - 26 Jan 2016
