Honey, Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken

Jump to Recipe

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!

  1. This sounds delicious but u left out the salt and black pepper?when do we put that in? Does this honey,lemon n rosemary chicken have a sweet n sour taste to it?..thanks!

  2. This meal screams summer! I am so ready for baked beans. Bush’s definitely are the best (next to homemade). The chicken looks perfect

  3. LOVE the idea of the honey with the rosemary! I usually make lemon/olive oil/ and rosemary chicken but this is a must try. Many thanks 🙂

  4. Perfect for summer, and something my kid in-laws would love! They are somewhat picky eaters, but you are right–this is simple, easy, goes with everything, and everyone would love it!

  5. What a beautiful meal!! I rarely make chicken because I get bored by it… But I definitely would not be bored by this! And the grill marks are so pretty 🙂

  6. I made this yesterday and it was delicious!! It smelled so good while grilling too – when I opened the lid to flip the chicken over, it smelled wonderful. Thank you for a great marinade recipe!

  7. Made this tonight with grilled corn, a buttermilk-yogurt dressed salad and thyme seasoned zucchini and squash. This chicken dish was so simple yet so flavorful and unbelievably moist! Its now in my go-to chicken recipe book!

  8. Hello from Nova Scotia, Canada! My husband and I made this for dinner tonight and absolutely loved it! Great job 🙂 I’m a new fan of your blog!!!

  9. Made this last night for my husband and I – wonderful! Definitely will go on our favorites list! We ended up baking the chicken due to lack of access to a grill right now – bet it tastes amazing grilled too!


  10. I made this delicious chicken, using the marinade, but don’t have a grill so cooked in my crockpot. So good!
