Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Breast Recipe

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Breast


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)


Prepare the Marinade:

  1. Zest and Juice Lemon:
    • Zest one lemon and juice two lemons. Set aside.
  2. Make Marinade:
    • In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Marinate Chicken:
    • Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to infuse.

Grill the Chicken:

  1. Preheat Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Remove Chicken from Marinade:
    • Take the chicken out of the marinade, allowing excess to drip off.
  3. Grill Chicken:
    • Place the chicken breasts on the preheated grill. Grill for approximately 6-8 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Baste with Marinade:
    • Occasionally baste the chicken with the remaining marinade during grilling for added flavor.
  5. Rest Chicken:
    • Once cooked, transfer the grilled chicken breasts to a plate and let them rest for a few minutes.


  1. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish the Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken with chopped fresh parsley. Serve the chicken breasts hot.


  • Grilling Time: Grilling time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts. Ensure that the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) for safe consumption.
  • Additional Lemon: If you enjoy a more intense lemon flavor, you can squeeze additional lemon juice over the grilled chicken before serving.

This Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Breast is a simple and flavorful dish that’s perfect for a light and healthy meal. The combination of zesty lemon and aromatic herbs creates a delicious and juicy grilled chicken. Enjoy!
