“Grilling means good times, good friends, and hopefully, great food.”
~ Bobby Flay

My summer recipe series continues with one of my favorites. It’s easy and delicious, creating chicken on the grill that’s both juicy and full of flavor. If you’ve disliked chicken breasts in the past, this recipe is about to change your mind.



2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
½ cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (takes 2-4 lemons, depending on size)
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp. fresh rosemary (minced)
1 clove garlic (pressed with garlic press)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper (optional – omit for AIP)


  1. In a large glass measuring cup, stir together the lemon juice, olive oil, rosemary, garlic, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness and cut into strips.
  3. Place the chicken in a large bowl or casserole dish and pour marinade on top. Toss to coat well, cover & refrigerate 2-3 hours. (Don’t marinate longer than this. Lemon juice is a strong, fast-acting marinade).
  4. Preheat a gas grill for 10 minutes on high. Then turn heat down to medium and grill the chicken, covered, for 4 minutes per side.
