Rosemary Lime Chicken Recipe

Rosemary Lime Chicken Recipe

I experimented with herbs and seasonings quite a bit before creating the final version of this entree. The tartness of the lime juice really complements the rosemary. Everyone loves it.—Nicole Harris, Mt. Union, Pennsylvania

"I've been making this recipe for several years as a main course. Just recently, I've been using it to cook up my chicken breasts, then use the chicken throughout the week in salads or whatnot. This will be a staple in my house forever."

"EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT. EXCELLENT. I have made this often since it was first published in the May/June 2004 issue of ?Quick Cooking?. My other half loves chicken and this recipe is his all time favorite. I have given this recipe to many other people because he talks about it all the time. He tells everyone that it is the rosemary that makes the difference. For a man to do that, you have to know this is excellent. TIP: When a recipe calls for crushed spices rather than using the back of a spoon or mortar and piston, I use a small coffee bean grinder. This releases more of the flavor than the traditional methods. After using the grinder, I just wipe it out with a damp cloth. Easy clean up."

"I use this recipe often. I prefer to use chicken broth over the wine. It's so fast and easy and surprisingly flavorful. This recipe introduced me to rosemary."
