The BEST Lemon Rosemary Dijon Chicken
Why did the chicken cross the road? To get into this recipe! We went to college in Boston and frequently dined at a restaurant that is no longer open. This restaurant made the best chicken. Now we know that the word “BEST” is often thrown around. Everyone thinks their mom is the “BEST” cook, everyone thinks their hairdresser is the “BEST” and everyone thinks they know the “BEST” place for knockoff purses that look real but are clearly knockoffs. “BEST” is overused but it is oh so appropriate here. This is the BEST chicken recipe! It is inspired by a little restaurant in Boston that used this simple rub on every type of chicken. This recipe is for 1-2lbs of chicken breast but can easily be modified for a whole chicken. This is restaurant quality chicken that you can impress anyone with!
