Reviews for Rosemary-Lemon Grilled Chicken
"I really liked this recipe. It worked very well with my grill pan, since I don't own a real grill. My man bought the thin cutlets instead by accident, but they worked out very well anyway. The taste was delicious. He said he definitely wants to make it again."
