Happy Wednesday, everyone! Am I the only one feeling overwhelmed this week?? ? Anyhow, I wanted to post this super-simple, rosemary and apricot chicken recipe today. I may or may not have stolen the rosemary from my neighbor’s garden…? worth it!? I served it 0ver some herbed rice, toasted pine nuts, parsley and pecorino Romano ? Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I love serving this with herb rice, cooked with some chicken stock or a flavorful couscous.
