Lemon Herb Chicken Bites

lemon-herb-chicken-bites.jpg

When it comes to cooking for baby, chicken has to be one of the most versatile foods available. It's quick and easy to cook and the results are usually tender and delicious. The only "hard" part is what to do for a marinade to give your chicken added flavor.
Most marinades on the market have ingredients that are packed with sugar and salty sauces. I opt to make my own.
Now that our garden is flourishing with herbs, I thought a simple lemon herb marinade would be perfect this time of year. Feel free to use any herb that you love such as rosemary, cilantro, dill, thyme or tarragon.
This recipe only took me minutes to prepare. Even better, you can double or even triple it and feed the entire family. I cut Kenya's into bite size pieces which he loved so he could feed himself. Such a big boy!

    silly question but if I wanted to double this recipe would I double the ingredients too?

      Yes you can double the recipe! I would keep the rosemary as is, double everything else, then add more rosemary if you want more of that flavor since rosemary can be pretty potent!
