Lemon-Rosemary Chicken Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Lemon-Rosemary Chicken which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.
- 1 pound (455 g) boneless, skinless chicken breast
- cup (60 ml) olive oil
- 2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 tablespoon (3.6 g) dried rosemary, crushed a bit
Mix together everything but the chicken.
Put the chicken breasts in a shallow dish.
Reserve some marinade for basting and pour the rest the olive oil/lemon mixture over the chicken.
Turn the breasts over once or twice to coat them.
(We're not doing this in a bag because we're going to marinate the chicken for only a short time.
) Now, go start your grill.
You'll want it at medium heat.
When it's ready, throw the chicken on the grill and cook for about 7 minutes per side, basting with the reserved olive oil/lemon mixture a few times using a clean utensil each time you baste.
I like to heat any leftover marinade until it boils hard and then spoon just a little over each breast while serving.
Even if you consumed all the marinade, which you won't, you'd get only 2 grams of carb per serving, 1 gram of which would be fiber. 34 grams protein.
