  • 6-8 chicken breast boneless skinless, trimmed of any fat


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill
  • 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped


  • In a small bowl, whisk all the marinade ingredients together.

  • Remove from marinade, shaking off any extra, and cook on the preheated grill, about 8 minutes per side, depending on the temperature of your grill, and the thickness of your chicken, or until cooked through and registers 165 degrees with an instant-read thermometer
