Give new flavor to you chicken

I love rosemary. It is so flavorful and robust. Just a little bit of this aromatic plant will liven up just about anything. It is really delicious with chicken, cauliflower, soup, beef, pork, eggs and much more. 

Like most herbs, rosemary is best when it is freshly harvested. The great thing is is that Rosemary is a remarkably easy plant to grow. It is a drought tolerant plant and will grow with minimal care either in a space in a garden or in a pot. Consult your local nursery to choose a variety that is best suited to you and your location.

I have a really lovely rosemary plant out in front of my house. I can’t believe this guy started out at 5 inches, It is a slow grower but every year it spreads a little more. Some varieties stay small, if you don’t have that much space. It is so easy to easy out and pinch a little bit of rosemary off the top of the plant to use in various dishes.

    I tried this for dinner last night and served it with rice pilaf and a side of simple green salad with sour pomegranate dressing. I loved it so much that I’m ready to make this again tonight!
