Lemon on Lemon

    This recipe, which serves 4, matches perfectly with Sauvignon Blanc. Why?Because Sauvignon Blanc often has a lemon or citrus component among its flavors.



* 1/2 onion

* 3 tsp. whole oregano

* 3 tsp. whole thyme

* 3 tsp. rosemary

* 6 garlic cloves, chopped

* 1 tsp. salt, optional

* 1 cup lemon juice

* 1/4 cup olive oil

* 2 whole chicken breasts, split in half


1. After removing skin, rub the chicken with the cut half of the onion. Discard onion.

2. Mix the herbs and garlic with the lemon juice and olive oil. Add the chicken, turning to coat with the marinade.

3. Marinate for 30 minutes.

4. Place chicken (bone-size) up on a broiling pan and broil (4-6 inches from the coil) for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Turn once. Baste with reserved marinade frequently.
