Cooking Light ~ Notes of Citrus

Our theme for the March Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club is Citrus.
Notes of citrus have a way of brightening almost any food. I love the bright citrus flavor of lemon, combined with the savory sage. My recipe this month is a Chicken with Lemon and Sage. The recipe is HERE on Cooking Light.
I modified it a bit... and it is a winner!
Chicken with Lemon and Sage
4 chicken breasts
1 Tbs grated lemon zest
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup white wine
1/4 cup minced fresh sage leaves
1 Tbs olive oil
2 tsp paprika
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Combine lemon zest and next 7 ingredients (through garlic) in a small bowl. Place juice mixture in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour. (As I was making the marinade I put some in a small boiler and reduced it for a thick citrusy sauce)
Remove chicken from bag, and discard marinade. Sprinkle chicken evenly with salt.
Prepare grill to medium-high heat.
Place chicken on grill rack, grill over direct heat 15 minutes, turning once. Move to indirect heat and cook until a thermometer registers 165°.

Now let's see what everyone else has brought for our Citrus Virtual Supper Club...
Jerry has Braised Fennel with Orange
Jamie is bringing a Mixed Greens Salad with Pears, Goat Cheese, and citrus dressing
Val is treating us all with a glass of Blood Orange Sangria
MaryAnn has made an appetizer of Lime-spiked Black Bean Dip
Roz has dessert~ a Lemon Cake!
Don't forget, that y'all are welcome to join in our virtual supper with the blog hop!

Y'all enjoy~

Lemon makes anything perfect for me.....I can't tell you how many lemons I use every week. Most of them are squeezed into my water but some get eaten...I've always loved them!

Jamie said...
