Honey, Lemon, & Rosemary Grilled Chicken

Thank you Two Peas and Their Pod for this marinade recipe.  It's perfect for summer grilling.

You'll need:

1/2 cup honey
zest of 1 lemon
2 tbs fresh lemon juice
2 tbs olive oil
1 1/2 tbs fresh rosemary, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 skinless, boneless, chicken breasts (or some chicken tenders)

Combine all ingredients except for chicken in a medium-sized bowl.  Put the chicken in a zip top bag, then add the marinade.  Mix it all around to ensure that the chicken is well coated.

Put the bag in the refrigerator and let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, and up to overnight.  If you'd like, come back to the bag every so often and mix it up.

Preheat your grill, brush the grates with olive oil, and go to town!  Place the chicken on the grill and discard the marinade.  Grill until cooked through.  Serve warm.

Delicious and healthy!  The only change I'd make to this chicken next time around would be to add more garlic.  A lot more garlic.  But that's just me.  It was really good over a bed of cous cous and roasted tomatoes.  And equally delicious the next day when I turned the leftovers into chicken salad.
