Herb Tips and Herbed Chicken Recipe
Hi, I’m Cindy from Cindy’s Recipes and Writings and love cooking with fresh herbs! When Laura invited me to guest post on Small Wallet Big Appetite I was so excited to share some tips with you!
As a Penn State Master Gardener, I learned so much about how to grow and use herbs. Fresh herbs can be an inexpensive way to dress up an everyday meal into something special! Herbs not only add great flavor, but as a bonus, herbs add a wonderful aroma to your dish, and your kitchen too!
Tips for adding herbs to everyday meals
Getting the most from your herbs
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 Tbsp each freshly chopped herbs, suggestions: chives, thyme, oregano, rosemary, parsley,basil
salt and pepper to taste
Replace the skin and coat it lightly with oil. Sprinkle with fresh herbs. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes and until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees in the thickest part of the breast.
Serve with your favorite side dish with herbs of course!
