Rosemary Chicken

I know I do a lot of chicken dishes but that's what is helping my hubby lose weight but I do have some recipe coming soon that you won't want to miss. This dish is so aromatic. Your home will smell so good when this is baking.

Rosemary Chicken
(this recipe makes dinner for two)

3-4 fresh rosemary sprigs
2 cloves garlic, thin sliced
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons olive oil
light salt and pepper to taste
2 lemons, one sliced, one for juice

Using a sharp knife, cut a pocket into the side of your chicken breast. stuff the chicken with a few slices of garlic and a sprig of rosemary. Place chicken in an 8x8 baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Turn chicken to coat evenly with oil and salt and pepper. Drizzle with lemon juice from one lemon. Arrange lemon slices, remaining rosemary and garlic on and around the chicken. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. 

Sesame Zucchini 
My sister asked so I will share. To make the zucchini as a side dish I take 2 good sized zucchini and cut them in fourths lengthwise. Then I cut them again into about 1 1/2 inch pieces. I heat butter (or imitation for the hubby) in a saute pan over med-high heat. Once it's hot I throw in some sesame seeds to brown. Then I throw in my zucchini. You have to mix them often so they will cook evenly. About 2 min before they are done cooking I add about 1-2 tablespoons of low sodium soy sauce and let them finish. SO GOOD!
