Lemon Tuscan Chicken

Recipe: Lemon Tuscan Chicken


  • 4 bone in, chicken breasts with skin
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbs fresh chopped rosemary
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  •  Zest from 2 lemons
  • 2 whole lemons halved


In a zip lock bag add olive oil, salt, pepper, rosemary, lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix the ingredients in the bag together to incorporate and then add the chicken breasts and coat in the marinade. Marinade the breast for 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator and turning the bag over every few hours. Preheat the grill on medium-high heat With the grill on medium-high heat about 350-400 degrees, place the breasts bone down for 20 minutes and with the grill covered. Turn the chicken skin side down for 10 minutes covered. Slice 1 lemon in half and place on the grill sliced side down and grill for 10 minutes. For the last five minutes turn the chicken breast on its thickest side and grill. Check for an internal temperature of the chicken breasts to reach 165 degrees and let rest for 5 minutes and serve. Roast the halved lemons on the grill and serve with the chicken; the roasted juices from the lemon are fantastic over the grilled chicken.
