I found this recipe in a cooking magazine that I pick up occasionally. My family loves these with pasta, and they're great in meatball subs with fresh tomato sauce (recipe posted separately). No frying required, either.
I got this recipe from my roommate who had grown up with it. I try not to eat much meat but the sauce alone over rice or pasta is to die for. It is such a great mixture of savory, earthy, salty and a tiny bit sweet.
This is a VERY easy way to make chicken, comes out moist and delicious! The fresh rosemary and zest of the lemon really give it a nice Spring taste. I use more garlic, 4 to 5 cloves. I also put a bit of the paste under the skin. The recipe calls for 2 cast iron skillets, but If you don't have a second cast iron skillet, use a regular pan and weigh it down with 2 heavy cans. I also have my butcher take out the backbone for me. (lazy me LOL) Time does not include marinading time. Adapted from Food Network, Cooking for Real, Sunny Anderson.
This recipe is adapted from Perfect Greek a collection of essential recipes. You can broil the chicken or grill on the back yard barbecue. Note: The times indicated do not include marinating time of at least 2 hours.
This is for serious garlic lovers. The chicken bakes out so moist and tender! Grated cheese may be sprinkled on top of the breast the last 5 minutes of cooking if desired but that is optional. Double all ingredients for more than four breasts and adjust the amount of garlic to suit taste. For the coating amount you might be able to get away with 5 or maybe 6 very small chicken breasts, but I would suggest to increase the amount slightly --- to take this dish to yet another level, about 10 minutes before the cooking time is finished, drizzle the top of the chicken with a little pasta sauce, then sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Return to oven for about 10 minutes until the chicken is completely cooked and sauce is hot and cheese has melted. For a lemon-garlic flavor add in 3 tablespoons lemon juice to the melted butter/garlic mixture --- *NOTE* for a healthier alternative Smart Balance Butter Blend may be used in place of the melted butter --- you will love this chicken!

This is hands down my favorite meal. Based upon the consensus of the people I have made a minor change to the recipe by sauteeing the onions before putting in the cheese mixture to assist with cooking the onions thoroughly.
Tender juicy steaks on the grill are one of life's pleasures. This is the best marinade we have ever come across. It is the perfect blend of flavors and it leaves the meat tender without being overpowering.
Note: I'm not sure of the origins of this recipe, I don't see a duplicate. Will post a picture.
