Lemon Myrtle Marinated Chicken with Native Parsley

Chicken Breast is low in fat, lean, easy to prepare and is also a great source of energy. Is there a better choice for a family dinner? But here’s a little trick we’ve had up our sleeves, a sprinkle of the sweet, spicy yet lemony Lemon Myrtle. Not just for the flavour but also because Lemon Myrtle is exceptionally rich in calcium and high in antioxidants, lutein, vitamin E, zinc and magnesium.
