I bought some fresh rosemary to try, and made up this recipe to go with it. For once I got the chicken cooked just right - not overdone, and it was so juicy and tender!

How to Make Lemon Rosemary Chicken

Step-by-Step

  • 1Make marinade: combine chicken breast, lemon juice, oil, wine, 2 teaspoons of the rosemary, shallot, salt, and pepper in a zip-top plastic bag or marinade dish. Mix well and seal. Let marinate at least 2 hours.
  • 2Drain the marinade into a medium skillet, reserving chicken. Heat marinade over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken breasts in the marinade, turning once or twice, until lightly browned.
  • 3Reduce heat, cover chicken with the green beans and chicken broth. Cover pan and simmer until chicken is tender and green beans cooked, about 5-7 minutes.
  • 4Remove chicken and green beans to serving plates. Heat remaining sauce to a boil and reduce slightly. Remove from heat. Stir in the butter to thicken the sauce. Serve sauce over chicken and green beans. Sprinkle with the remaining teaspoon of rosemary.
