Chicken with Rosemary Limoncello



As promised in my limoncello post from April 10 , here is my chicken limoncello recipe.


  • Ingredients: 2 garlic cloves, 3 Sprigs of rosemary, 1/2 cup limoncello, chicken legs, salt, pepper.
  • Directions

 1. Here I am cutting some fresh rosemary sprigs from my garden to include in my recipe. Store-bought fresh rosemary will do fine. I am simply happy that I can get these from my herb garden.


2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3. Add 2 cloves of garlic to a hot pan with oil.

4. Add the chicken,  rosemary and the limoncello


5. Cover with a lid and let it cook until golden brown.


You can choose to make the same recipe with chicken breast. It will be lighter but will still carry same delicious flavors.


Soon I will be making a delicious limoncello cake and I will be sharing that recipe also. Limoncello continues to surprise me. Especially, since I am not a big liqueur fan. Limoncello has arrived to my kitchen and is quickly becoming the most versatile ingredient yet.

TIP: If you want to make this recipe and don’t have limoncello, you can replace the limoncello with lemon or lime and white cooking wine.


My Spring (Fruit) Garden


Blooming Apple Tree

My spring fruit garden is starting to wake up.  This is our blooming apple tree! It is absolutely fantastic. Nature comes back stronger each year, promising delicious, abundant harvests! A few years ago we planted two kinds of apple trees and the tags are nowhere to be found. I’ll need to see them growing back to remind myself to make a tag and attach them securely to the trees this year. 🙂

Apples are simple, elegant and light. They’re excellent ingredients for desserts. There are at least five apple recipes that come to mind. For example, quite a few lamb and pork recipes can easily make apples the stars of the show. Apples also have a way of turning any dull salad into an exciting adventure. The apples in the Cartagena Fishermen Salad give a sweet crispness to this delicious dish.

Here are a few more pictures from our Spring garden…

Those of us with ‘teen’ temperatures during winter truly learn to appreciate the Spring bright green. Perennial fruit gardens are especially a joy to watch! Hopefully soon I can pick some peaches, apples, grapes and blueberries and cook up some fun recipes. Spring is definitely my favorite season!  🙂
