Lemon Herb Chicken

Lemon Herb Chicken uses fresh rosemary and thyme to provide a moist and flavorful dish. I love growing herbs that I can use to give recipes fresh flavor.  Fresh herbs can usually be purchased in the produce section of your grocery store. Although if you’ve never tried growing herbs before, here is a great selection of seeds to get you started! Herbs are really easy to grow! Garlic is something else I grow in my garden which adds great flavor to many dishes. Now all I need is a lemon tree and I’ll be set for this recipe! I hope you enjoy this (mostly healthy) chicken!
