Rosemary Lemon Chicken

Rosemary Lemon Chicken

Hello wonderful readers and happy fall! I know I’ve been away for a few months and I apologize for leaving y’all high and dry. I’ve been working on improving my food photography to make my recipes more attractive as well as practicing a gluten free diet (or at least as close as I can manage. It’s really hard!). I’ve been trying lots of new recipes minus flour, rice and sugar, like this one.

I’m absolutely in love with my Chicken with Capers recipe and make it at least once a month. It’s healthy, delicious, easy to make and a big time crowd pleaser. This Rosemary Lemon Chicken recipe is something I created as a variation on my favorite recipe. I hope you like it!

You can skip the brining if you’re trying to keep your salt intake low or you’re short on time, but I’ve become a big fan of brining my chicken for almost every recipe. Brining makes my world a happier place.

If you like the recipe, please be sure to tell me! I’d love your feedback.
