Citrus Garlic Chicken

Simple, flavorful ingredients comprise this easy and delicious chicken recipe. I found the original recipe in the The Paleo Diet by Dr. Loren Cordain and modified it to my liking. Don't be scared to veer from recipes and make them your own.

My love for rosemary runs deep so you will find this magnificent herb in a lot of my recipes. I happened to be out of all fresh herbs so I used dry this time. Just check the bottle for the conversion from fresh to dry.

2 T fresh lemon juice (1 lemon)
1T fresh orange juice (1/2 orange)
Tsp finely chopped thyme
Tsp finely chopped fresh sage or 1/2tsp dried
Ground black pepper
1 sprig chopped rosemary
2 cloves garlic
1-2T olive oil (for marinade)
2 -3 boneless chicken breasts, halved (or just buy the thin-sliced breasts)
1T olive oil (for sauteing)

Put all marinade ingredients in a bowl. Add chicken breasts and marinate for a minimum of 2 hours but preferably overnight. Heat 1T olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add chicken breasts (including marinade) and sauté for approximately 6 minutes per side or until chicken
is no longer pink. Easily consumed by all ages!
