Grapefruit and Rosemary Chicken

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Grapefruit and Rosemary Chicken, marinated and grilled chicken thighs.

This is another recipe, from my daughter's kitchen. Chicken in a simple marinade (overnight or all day while you are at work), then grilled to perfection. This is perfect for those warm-weather evening, dinners. A very creative soul, our daughter is moving into the role of matriarch in her own home, and this dish is proof of that shift. She has taken the reins in her kitchen as well and put together unusual yet delicious combinations in foods, beyond desserts.

While her family enjoys breast meat, ours is a dark meat only kitchen. Therefore we will marinate for a bit longer. I have yet to over marinade a piece of meat. I love that you can toss this together and let marinate until you are ready to cook a couple of days later. Thigh meat is dense and there can be a bit of a struggle to get the flavor into the meat.

Grapefruit and Rosemary Chicken
adapted from: a conversation with my daughter

1-2 large grapefruit, juiced with the pulp scraped out
1-2 sprigs rosemary crumbled to release the flavor
1/2 t garlic salt
8-10 chicken thighs

Grapefruit and Rosemary Chicken

Combine everything, including the pulp from the grapefruit in a large glass bowl (you may also use a large plastic Ziploc bag), coat well with marinade ingredients. Turn ingredients twice a day, to rotate chicken and coat with the marinade.

Grill after 24 hours or up to 48 hours. We prefer a longer marinade time for chicken thighs, we used the 48-hour mark before grilling

Grill until golden brown and the center temperature indicates properly cooked.

  1. Ok that looks great. Really. I'll have to make this chicken in the next couple of months while I still have fresh rosemary (I grow it in pots each summer). Sorry I was so late getting here this week -- we were off camping and had almost no internet connection.
