Lemon-Herb Grilled Chicken

This lemon-herb grilled chicken was a recipe I saw when I first started my blog. It was on a local television show called “Good Things Utah”. It is so delicious.

In my hurry to get the marinate on the chicken before church when I first made this recipe, I made a mistake. I missed the part about placing the marinade in the blender before added the chicken to it. I just mixed it all up with a wire whisk. It still turned out great. If I had blended it, we would not have been eating the large pieces of the dried rosemary.

Since then, I have kept this recipe with my mistake and all. I actually love the big pieces of the dried rosemary. So you can do it your way. whisk or blend it, whichever you prefer.

  • ½ cup canola oil or olive oil
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp dried Thyme
  • 1 Tbsp dried Rosemary
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 4 -8 chicken breasts I prefer chicken tenders and use about 18


  • Combine all ingredients except the chicken together in a bowl and whisk together. Alternately, you can place the marinade in the blender and blend well if you don't like the large pieces of herbs.
  • Pour over chicken and marinate for 4-8 hours. I like to place it all in a gallon sized ziploc bag.
  • Cook on grill until chicken is done.
