Grilled Rosemary Chicken on Mixed Greens

The latest recipe swap that I participated in was a grilling theme, and this recipe was perfect after a weekend of heavy eating. It’s a nice and light dish that’s easy to make on a weeknight. Angie from My Chicago Kitchen picked a winner here!


I deviated slightly from the recipe by dressing the salad with EVOO and fresh lemon juice. The flavors were perfect together. Thanks again to Sarah from A Taste of Home Cooking for hosting!
