Grilled Lemon Grass Chicken Recipe

I use Lemon Grass for so many things! It is one of the ingredients in my natural Mosquito repellant and I use it in tea and other recipes. Lemon Grass is not hardy in Tennessee but I winter it over in the greenhouse (unheated) or in the basement under lights. This recipe turned out so good I wanted to share it here. I cooked it on the grill but it would be just as good baked in the oven at about 400° till a meat thermometer reads 165°

Grilled Lemon Grass Chicken
Boneless Chicken Breasts (I used 2)
a handful of Lemon Grass cut into about 14-18 inch pieces
1 sprig of fresh Rosemary for each piece of chicken
Dried Rosemary can be substituted
Garlic salt, fresh cracked pepper
Sprinkle the chicken pieces with garlic salt and fresh crushed pepper
lay a sprig of Rosemary on top of each piece and then wrap lemon grass around each piece and tie. I used 3 of these ties for each piece.  

Now your are ready for the grill. My grill is electric and the thermometer has been broken for an age. I just preheated the grill till I knew the chicken would sear when I put it on the rack. I seared each side well and cooked it till my meat thermometer read 165°.  
Now I plated it and served ours with sweet potato fries, spinach, tomato and fresh sprouts drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Yummy!
