Rosemary Lemon Grilled Chicken

I have been craving rosemary and chicken for a little while now, so yesterday I had the thought to try to mimic the lemon rosemary butter sauce I make for salmon but try it with chicken instead. I hopped on Google to see what other recipes were doing, and I found this gem. This dinner was so delicious I couldn’t eat it fast enough. I served mine with mashed potatoes and gravy, and Caesar salad. I hope you enjoy as much as we did!

Rosemary Lemon Grilled Chicken
Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 20-30 minutes
Serves: 4

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup fresh rosemary leaves
3 cloves garlic
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon (approx. 1/4 cup)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt & pepper to taste

In a food processor, thoroughly blend together butter, rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Divide into thirds.

Rinse and pat chicken dry. Rub it with 1/3 of the rosemary butter mixture, and let marinate in fridge for minimum 30 minutes.

Heat grill to about 400F; remove chicken from marinade, and grill until cooked through, approx. 20 to 30 minutes. Baste with another 1/3 of the rosemary butter mixture while grilling.

Serve with a dollop of the rosemary butter (from your remaining third of the mixture), mashed potatoes with gravy, and vegetables of your choice.
