  • 1 medium lemon juiced and zested
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped finely, more if you want it stronger
  • 2 medium cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts bone-in and skin-on (you can also use thighs or legs)


  • Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl, or place all ingredients in a mason jar, cover, and shake until well combined.
  • Place chicken in a resealable bag and pour marinade on top. Toss gently to coat chicken. Set aside for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Preheat grill to medium to medium-high.Remove chicken from marinade and pat with paper towels to remove excess marinade. Grill chicken about 7-8 minutes per side or until cooked through. The time can vary wildly depending on the grill and thickness of the chicken pieces. 
  • Remove from grill, cover gently with aluminum foil and let it rest about 10 minutes or so if desired, before serving.
