WHAT’S FOR DINNER?





Rosemary Baked Chicken


Spring has arrived in all its glory but with it came a few scattered cold rainy days. On one of those evenings recently I needed to make an easy and quick dinner. First it has to be healthy, since we really are trying to eat healthy and of course something delicious. My recipe for rosemary chicken was the perfect choice. I served it with a baked potato with low fat toppings and to replace bread and salad I made my favorite bruschetta recipe.



Rosemary Infused Olive Oil or Olive Oil with chopped rosemary




I love to make and keep rosemary infused olive oil. It is great to place on the island with a warm crusty bread for dinner guests to enjoy along with a glass of wine while dinner is being prepared. I was out I so I used olive oil with fresh rosemary from my herb garden.

Add your favorite seasonings. I use Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Original blend. Let sit covered in refrigerator until ready to go into oven.





Transfer chicken to your favorite baking pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for twenty minutes. Turn oven down to 325 and continue to bake until chicken is brown and cooked through. Cover and let sit until ready to serve.

  25. YUMMY!! I love rosemary, and I also like to keep several herbs in oil which I call green sauce. I typically make a jar of parsley with garlic, a jar of cilantro, and a jar of rosemary. It's so good, healthy, and makes cooking simpler since you have a marinade and a base sauce made ahead.
    I'm hungry. :)

    Loved your gardens in Holland post too. I know heaven is glorious. I am so glad you shared your feelings of feeling a touch of heaven. Your music is glorious also.
