I’m a big fan of marinating and baking chicken breasts. It’s a method that’s easy and usually fairly healthy for you. Stonewall Kitchen makes a line of tasty sauces and marinades, several of which I’ve tried, including Jamaican Jerk Sauce, Sesame Ginger Teriyaki Sauce, and Maple Chipotle Grill Sauce, among others. Today I tried their Garlic Rosemary Citrus Sauce, which I bought for the price of $6.99 at a grocery store in Manhattan. Here’s a link to but it on Amazon.
I added the sauce to a baking dish, along with pieces of chicken breast meat, trimmed of any visible fat. Then I baked them at 400 degrees for about forty-five minutes, turning the chicken pieces a couple of times during the process. I also made some rice in the microwave in a microwave-safe bowl. The smell that filled the house was quite tantalizing…citrus, like lemons and oranges, but also slightly reminiscent of some Indian curries.
I served up some of the chicken pieces, and drizzled a little of the extra marinade over the rice. I was quite pleased with the meal. The marinade was sweet, with citrus accents, most noticeably orange, but it was also just slightly spicy, suggestive of red pepper flakes. Based on this experience, I would certainly try this marinade again, and I would recommend it as well. When you’re looking to make a semi-gourmet meal but you’re feeling too lazy to throw a marinade together yourself, this might be a good way to go. It’s also fat free, which, of course, is always going to get a thumbs up from me.
