Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Lemon

Since it's summer, I've been so preoccupied with having fun and going out to eat that we haven't been home to make many meals!  This one was a really simple one and turned out delicious!  We had a few people over and it was a nice day out, so chicken and grill to the rescue!

I made this recipe using all ingredients that I had on hand.  I always have individually frozen chicken breasts in the freezer because they're so versatile and healthy.  Just pop them in the fridge the night before you need them and they're all thawed out whenever you need them!

Fresh herbs, bright lemon flavor and a touch of sweetness make this recipe perfect for summer!

This is so easy and delicious.

Grilled Rosemary Chicken with Lemon

Ingredients: (serves 8)
- 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, tenderized
- 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, minced
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp poultry seasoning
- 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- 6 cloves garlic, minced into a paste (so it doesn't burn on the grill)
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 lemon, zested (use the same lemon that you're juicing)
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- Freshly cracked salt and pepper to taste

- Place chicken breasts in a baking dish to marinate
- Season chicken with salt and pepper on both sides
- Mix all other ingredients in a bowl; pour over chicken
- Marinate for 30 minutes or longer if you have time
- Grill chicken until it's cooked through (about 6 minutes on each side)
- Baste chicken liberally with leftover marinade while grilling

Happy grilling!!
