Roselle Rosemary Chicken

I made Roselle Rosemary Chicken using the Roselle Syrup we posted a while ago. This sauce would also go well with pork; it has a sweet, tart flavor to it. You can use fresh thyme instead of rosemary if you prefer.

Serves: 2


2 chicken breasts
1 tablespoon butter
¼ cup onion, finely chopped
2 springs of fresh rosemary
½ cup chicken stock

  1. Season the chicken fillets with salt and pepper. Preheat the grill.
  2. In a small pot, sauté the onion with a little butter. Add the rosemary springs, the chicken stock and the roselle syrup. Season with salt and pepper. Let the mixture simmer for about 5 min.
  3. Grill chicken according to your griller’s instructions or brown them in a pan with oil and butter. When they are done, transfer them to the pot with the roselle-rosemary sauce and let it simmer for about 5 min longer.
