Grilled Rosemary Chicken Recipe

Grilled Rosemary Chicken Recipe

When the temperatures turned warm last week, we couldn’t wait to break out the grill. There is a fantastic flavor that food gets when its cooked over a flame in the wide open air.


Yes, it’s still March but grilling season has started for us.

Still, when I was developing this recipe, I didn’t intend it to be a grilled dish. On the stovetop, it’s good … it’s easy … it’s fast. But that grilled flavor makes it so much more wonderful.

The flavor of this? Decidedly rosemary. The notes of lemon and garlic play quiet supporting roles to the strong, vibrant main attraction — and that’s a wonderful thing if you love rosemary like we do.

We ate this with some lightly flavored pasta and roasted broccoli.

In a word: fabulous.

Tomorrow, the leftovers will top our homemade pizza for dinner. Can’t wait.

Are you ready to grill yet?
