Honey, Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken

Memorial Day is right around the corner. Is your grill ready? We love grilling out, especially on holidays. It is tradition. Josh always “mans” the grill. One of his favorite recipes to serve up is this Honey, Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken. It is great to serve at parties because it goes with everything and everyone loves it.

This recipe is super easy to make, which makes it perfect for summer parties. You can make it in advance because the chicken needs to marinate for at least 30 minutes and can marinate in the refrigerator overnight. Remove the chicken from the marinade when your grill is hot and ready!

We like to serve this Honey, Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken with Bush’s Southern Pit Barbecue Grillin’ Beans. The beans are a great side for your Memorial Day BBQ!

This Honey, Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken is perfect for any barbecue!

Yield: Serves 4


1/2 cup honey
Zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Extra olive oil, for brushing the grill


1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the honey, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, fresh rosemary, garlic, salt, and pepper.

2. Place the chicken breasts in a large Ziploc bag. Pour honey-lemon-rosemary mixture into the bag and mix around until chicken breasts are well-coated. Place the bag in the refrigerator and let marinate for at least 30 minutes up to overnight.

3. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat and brush the grill with olive oil. Remove the chicken breasts from the bag and place on the grill. Discard the marinade.

4. Grill chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from grill and serve warm.
