Rosemary and Garlic Chicken

7 Jun

Some how I have been really willing to use the flavor of rosemary in my food. So my recent trip to the grocery store demanded me to bring this new herb rosemary. It usually goes well with meat and chicken. So I decided to go with chicken. Somehow I enjoy using herbs in my cooking as it gives a very refreshing flavor.

Rosemary has some great health benefits such as it helps in cancer prevention, improving memory, pain relief,  mood elevator, digestive problems, and immune booster. Not only it is good for health but its pine-like aroma and pungent flavor goes well with chicken, lamb, pork, salmon and tuna dishes.
