Grilled Chicken Breast w/Rosemary and Thyme

Total Time
Prep 35 mins
Cook 14 mins

I came across this most juicy chicken breast recipie while on My DH just loves it. I make it at least once a week and always when I have guests in town. It is the easiest & tastiest recipe to make. Bonus, clean up is a piece of cake! (prep time includes 30 minutes marinating in refrigerator). Serve with steamed veggies or salad, and rice or mashed potatoes for a complete dinner.

This recipe was easy, but I think it needs to marinate for a little longer than 30 minutes, because the flavor really didn't come through. I'll make it again, but next time, I'll double the time and amount of marinade. To cook the meat faster, I pounded it to about 1/4" with a meat mallet.

These are very good...I used fresh garlic and marinated longer, about 4 hours. Then grilled. Very moist and tender. Spices are perfect.Thanks for posting.....Gina :)

This was very savory. I took the advice of others and doubled it and marinated for about 2 hours. It came out with a nice crust ye t moist. I recommend serving with grilled tomatoes or something like that to off-set the very savory flavors here. Thanks for posting!
