Serving Up {Chicken}: Rosemary Chicken Marinade

Summer has finally come to the Northwest!  It has been a lonnnggg winter.  We just turned our heat off last week and three days later we were at 80+ degrees.  I'm not sure what happened to Spring but maybe we will get a few Spring-like days in the next few weeks before 80 degrees return to stay.

When the temperatures heat up it's nice to take the cooking out of the kitchen.  I like to throw my frozen chicken breasts into a marinade (morning of or even the night before) and let the chicken thaw while they soak up the delicious flavors of the marinade.  When dinnertime comes around I fuel up the barbecue and dinner is a snap.  This recipe for chicken marinade is my most's quick to throw together, the ingredients are almost always on hand, and it's delicious (a favorite even of my kiddos).
