Cracked rosemary packs all of the punch of fresh rosemary. Better still, its smaller pieces are not abrasive to the palate. Size Options

Grilled Tuscan Chicken with Rosemary & Lemon Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary, or 1 tablespoon dried rosemary
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 (3 1/2 - 4 pound) chicken, cut into 8-10 serving portions
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (1-2 whole lemons)
  • {{ buttonText }}
Preparation Instructions

Heat grill to medium.

In a small saucepan, bring 1/3 cup water and rosemary to a boil; remove from heat, cover and let steep 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender. Add oil and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth; let cool.

Combine chicken and rosemary oil in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, and turn to coat. Cover and let marinate at least 15 minutes at room temperature--or overnight in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.

Remove chicken from marinade; place on grill. Discard marinade. Cook, basting frequently, with lemon juice, and turning as needed to prevent burning, until cooked throughout, 20 to 30 minutes.

Used this recipe with 2 chicken breasts and 2 thighs. Grilled on a charcoal grill for 20 minutes and the result was excellent - moist and tender. My wife loved it!.

For more than 20 years I've done all chicken even easier than this ... wash and remove skin, lay in cooking container, add pepper and lay small rosemary branches over, pour lemon juice over. Am sure the garlic, oil, salt give this even more; but am watching salt and oil and when I want easy, I want REAL EASY. Try it; you'll like it. Works on grill or in oven

Soooo good. But marinate it longer than 15 mins.
