How to Make Grilled Lemon Rosemary Chicken

This recipe is super simple to make and can be prepped ahead of time, which is even better to allow the flavors to really soak into the chicken! To start, pound the chicken breasts out to about an even thickness. This will allow the chicken to cook more evenly and a bit faster. Next, mix together olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, fresh chopped rosemary, minced garlic, and salt in a bowl.

Combine the chicken and the marinade in either a Tupperware container or a plastic Ziploc bag. Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes, but ideally 4-8 hours. Once you’re ready to cook, preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot, add the chicken breasts to the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breasts, so I always use a meat thermometer to ensure my chicken is cooked properly, to 165 degrees F.

Once chicken is cooked, serve and enjoy!
