Grilled Lemon-Rosemary Chicken

Last 21st June, 2009 was Father's Day. Though it has already past, let me just wish all the fathers a HAPPY FATHER'S DAY. Better late than never. But to me, everyday is Father's Day because I am sure, everyday we'll love our dad more and more, right.

Though abah is no longer with us, I still feel his presence, his love and the memories will stay fresh forever in my heart. My abah is the best in the world. He's so loving, so gentle, so caring, so soft spoken and he has the heart of a gold. At times when I am baking alone in the kitchen, I feel as if he's there with me, accompanying me as he used to do before. Abah likes to stay in the kitchen when he knows that I am up to something. He'll sit patiently at the kitchen table, watching me 'playing' around with the flour and will wait until the end result is produced and served to him. I really miss all those good ol' times. I am sure, if he's still with us, I won't be loosing my 'semangat' like what I am experiencing now....... Miss you abah.... miss you oh so dearly.......

Latest update on the tailor... Yesterday, on the way back from Subang Parade, we dropped by the tailor's shop. The last time we went, he had asked for another 3 days. We gave him more than a week. I didn't even bother to get out of the car this time! And as I well predicted, dearest hubby came back empty handed! I felt sorry for him...

In the previous entry, some had suggested me to call first before paying him a visit. How can I do so when the number he gave was someone else's number. Another had said, keep bothering him until he get bored seeing our face.... Well I think that won't work with this guy! He'll 'selamba-ly' makes promises after promises. Once hubby had said, maybe he has the intention of getting away with our money and material. He'll keep doing this until we're fed up and will just leave him alone.... I said to myself, maybe because hubby is soft with him. What if hubby has that 'Ah Long' look... I bet he'll work night and day to get the trousers done!!!

Oh God help me...

D.A.A.L.I.A came over to my place last Saturday to collect her chocolates. And see what she brought for me???

Yummy looking isn't it? How lucky I am to be appointed as her Black Forest Cake tester! Hahaha... Thanks Lea for the cake.... kalau nak suruh test apa-apa lagi...anto ler yek.... daku sedia berkhidmat! Muahahaha....

Okay, enough of my 'luahan rasa', we'll move on to the recipe to share today. Tried this chicken recipe when Fatin was at home during the school holidays. The way she eats, just makes me hungry. She has the same 'talent' as my mom. Whenever she eats, we feel like eating as well! Sorry, the photo is not so tempting as I was in a hurry. And other reason is, I don't know how to make a better presentation! That's the truth! Hahaha...

Source :


4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons, fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon, fresh rosemary, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Method :

Place chicken breasts in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. Combine rosemary, garlic, black pepper, olive oil, and salt in a small bowl. Pour mixture onto chicken, cover or seal, and place in refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Place chicken breast on a lightly oiled grill rack and allow to cook for 7 minutes per side. When chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, remove from heat and serve.

Take care everyone!
