Recipe for Rosemary-Citrus Marinade:
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 large lemons, zest and juice
- 1 large orange, zest and juice
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 8 garlic clove, roughly chopped
- 1 (2 oz.) package fresh rosemary, roughly chopped, stems included
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper
- Place all of the ingredients in either a food processor or food blend and blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until fairly smooth. Pour into a large heavy duty Zip lock bag.
- Place the chicken on a cutting board and use the tines of a fork to prick all over the meat. Transfer to the Zip lock bag and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
- After the chicken has marinated, you can either roast the breasts in a heated 375 F. oven or fir up the grill and cook over direct heat.

There is nothing like a juicy flavorful baked chicken breast bone in, not to mention a healthier alternative to other proteins. While bone in chicken breasts may take a little longer to prepare the added flavor from the bone is hard to beat.
The cost of bone in chicken breast is cheaper by the pound and expect to have the skin still on. If you prefer no skin it is very simple to remove although I prefer some natural fat basting over the meats while it is baking in the oven.
If you are on a budget, then buying a whole chicken can be the cheaper way to go. You can create 6 to 8 pieces of meat, including the boob. In this video a butcher shows us how they do it-quickly. It is pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it and don't mind the slimy raw meat.
My only advise to debone a whole chicken is to have a steady hand and one hell of a sharp 8" to 10" chef knife. You can freeze the other pieces for a later use, or roast them and make shredded meat and a tasty broth.
