Ingredients

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • Zest and juice from 1 large lemon
  • 6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Steps

  1. In a large bowl, mix together garlic, rosemary, lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt and pepper. Add chicken cutlets and toss to coat in the marinade. Marinate for 30 minutes to 4 hours in the refrigerator.
