Makes: 4 

  • 125ml lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons dried rosemary or fresh rosemary to taste
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets
  • 1 lemon, sliced

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:8hr marinating  ›  Ready in:8hr30min 

  1. In a large resealable plastic bag, mix the lemon juice, olive oil and rosemary. Place the chicken and lemon slices in the bag. Seal and shake to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat the barbecue for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the cooking grate. Discard marinade and barbecue chicken 8 minutes per side or until juices run clear. Don't worry about the rosemary sticking to the chicken, it tastes great when it's barbecued. If you use fresh rosemary sprigs, throw the stems onto the coals - they give the chicken even more of a smoky rosemary flavour!
