One of the Few

Spicy Salt Rubbed Chicken
This is one of the very few ways Gillian will eat any meat. I made this for Girl's book club last month & Gillian ate nearly half of a piece. Scott & I were amazed! So, I have made it a few more times since then. She eats it every time. I'm glad it's an easy one, with ingredients we always have on hand!
We just made it last week for a 4th of July bbq. I'm sad I didn't take any pictures from this last week. Scott's parents & brother came to town for the holiday weekend. We had a good time! And, on the 4th, my family all came over ,too, for a bbq. Gillian loved that day. She spent almost the whole day outside.
Anyway - here's the recipe for the chicken. It's a simple one to remember, as the measurements are almost all the same!

serves 10

10 chicken breasts (or whatever pieces you want...)
1/3 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
2/3 c. olive oil
1/3 c. oregano leaves, finely chopped
1/3 c. rosemary leaves, finely chopped
1/3 c. thyme leaves, finely chopped
1/3 c. kosher salt
2 1/2 T. freshly ground black pepper

Marinade the chicken pieces in the lemon juice & olive oil, at least 1 hour.
Prepare the grill.
Combine herbs & salt & pepper in a bowl . Dredge each piece of chicken in rub.
Grill the chicken over medium coals, for about 20 minutes. (depending on the cut of meat & thickness, etc...)

Hi Erin...I'm a friend of Stefanie's (my name is Jill Combs), and I enjoy reading your blog. I thought I'd finally say hello and actually leave a comment! :) I don't know if you remember me or not, but we have met on a few occasions.

Anyway, this recipe looks great! I'm always looking for new ways to grill. :)
