  • tablespoons minced fresh rosemary leaves
  • tablespoons minced fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme leaves
  • 3 cloves garlic grated or squeezed through a garlic press
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large lemons juiced
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 4 chicken breasts pounded to 1/2 inch thickness with flat side of meat tenderizer


  • Add the fresh herbs, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in to a large shallow dish and whisk to combine.

Use tongs to toss the chicken breasts into the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit on the counter for 1 hour. *note:

  • if marinating for 2 hours, refrigerate for 1-1/2 hours and remove from the fridge a half hour before grilling.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill chicken about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Every grill is different, so watch and flip when good grill marks form and remove when the chicken is fully cooked.
  • Serve as is or thinly slice for topping a salad.
