Marinated Rosemary Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
This moist chicken, sent in by Wendy Molzahn of Beaumont, Alberta, is partially cooked in the microwave just before grilling to speed up cooking. The rosemary marinade enhanced the meat flavor...and there's enough sauce to set aside for basting.

One serving (3 ounces cooked chicken) equals 175 calories, 8 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 66 mg cholesterol, 312 mg sodium, 2 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 23 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat.

Directions

  1. In a measuring cup, combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, garlic and rosemary. Pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.

  4. Immediately place chicken over drip pan and grill covered, over indirect medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Yield: 6 servings.
