Sunday Chicken!

When I was a kid my mom often made a big iron skillet full of browned chicken for Sunday night dinner. Tonight we'll have chicken but since it's summer, we'll use the grill and keep the heat out of the kitchen!


Grilled Rosemary Mustard Chicken
Baby Bella Mushrooms and Spinach
Arborio Rice with Shaved Parmesan

Make marinade. Score chicken on top to allow marinade to seep into chicken. Put chicken and marinade into ziplock bag and refrigerate. Marinate 4 to 6 hours.

4 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup good quality extra virgin olive oil
1tsp. minced fresh or jarred garlic
3 T minced fresh rosemary
1 tsp. coarse ground black pepper

Preheat grill to high—Put chicken on grill and turn to medium. Grill five minutes. Turn chicken and grill another five minutes. Remove and cover with foil allowing the breasts to rest (they also continue to cook a bit as well)

Spinach and Mushrooms

Brown mushrooms in olive oil, then add half a big bag of fresh spinach (that you've rinsed). Once it's all wilted add a few T of white balsamic vinegar.


  1. Am so enjoying your summer postings. Sadly, DHJ often isn't home from work until after 10 pm so eating together on a summer eve just isn't realistic - heck, I'm ready for bed by then on many nights!.
    At any rate, just wanted to pass along my encouragement for your efforts. Wish we lived nearby so we could share.

  2. Thanks so much for your encouragement! Not very many people read my blog so I'm glad you like it!! I'm having fun even though I don't have a wide audience :-)
