Lately I have been making really simple recipes and meals. Perhaps it’s a reaction to the holidays and abundance of rich dishes and sweets, but more likely it’s a lack of energy after long work days and holiday to-do-lists taking over any available brain space. Keeping that in mind, today’s recipe is a simple rosemary and garlic chicken breast that can be grilled or seared in a pan and finished in the oven.
