Grilled Rosemary Chicken Breasts

This simple chicken recipe is easy and flavorful.  The garlic, lemon, mustard, and rosemary marinade blend for a nice fresh  flavor. This simple summer grilling recipe can easily be a mainstay of your menu. Add a salad or vegetables and your dinner is complete.







I have my live rosemary bush in the flower bed by my front door and love the scent of fresh rosemary.  You can use dried rosemary for the dish also.  Rosemary and lemon have such a lively scent and flavor. They are two of my favorite ingredients in cooking.

  1. Another great recipe. I am stepping away from red meat for the most part. And all of the different chicken recipes are welcome. Thanks for sharing. We use our grill year-round here.

  2. Rosemary can be a little too strong in flavour for my liking, however the overall combination of flavours makes this a really interesting dish, so I would probably include it. I always choose skinless, boneless fillets of chicken anyway!

    Looks lovely 🙂

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
