Rosemary Lime Grilled Chicken

Juicy, tender Chicken marinated in Lime and Rosemary and grilled perfectly

Grilled chicken is such a versatile meat to use in so many different ways. This Rosemary and Lime grilled Chicken can be served as is, sliced into a salad for a light dinner, on a burger and just about however else you can think of.

Because this chicken is so tender and juicy, I normally serve it as is with mashed potatoes and sides or salads. I actually prefer meat {chicken or any other} without a gravy/sauce as I think that changes the flavor of the meat way too much.

I cooked mine, once again, on my George Foreman griller and it literally took a few minutes to cook to just the right degree. Whether you cook these on a griller or over the coals, do brush the fillets as much as you can with the leftover marinade - it really does make a difference.

How would you serve this kind of grilled Chicken fillet ? As a burger, in a salad or do you have a totally different idea in mind ?  {just curious ;-) }


Serves : 6 - 8


4 Large Chicken Fillets, halved and flattened evenly


1 t Lime Peel, grated
1 TB Fresh Rosemary, chopped
1/2 cup Fresh Lime Juice
1 TB Light Olive Oil
2 t Sugar
2 t Garlic, crushed
1/2 t Salt

Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
Lime Wedges/Slices, to serve


1.) Place the Chicken Fillets in a marinade container.
2.) Combine all the Marinade ingredients in a bowl - mix well - pour over the Chicken and marinate 2 - 4 hours, turning the marinade bowl regularly.
3.) Remove the Chicken from the marinade - season to taste with Black Pepper and grill, brushing 2 - 3 times with the leftover marinade.

Serve with Lime Wedges or Slices.

  1. You're killing the summer meals Linda.

  2. This looks great, Linda. I have a lot of rosemary in the garden right now so I could whip this right up. I like halving/flattening the chicken so it cooks quickly and you can keep it moist!

  3. This looks delicious. I love anything with lime in the summer.
    Thanks for sharing,

  4. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I need to do more with rosemary, and so this will help me. And of course I'm a sucker for lime :)

  5. This looks wonderful. I have fresh rosemary growing on the front porch right now and putting it with lime sound delicious. I'd serve it on top of a salad of fresh pick greens. Found you at Wow Us Wednesday. Pinning it!

  6. I'm always looking for a new way to marinate my chicken. This looks great! Thanks for sharing! ;-D

  7. Chicken has to be one of my favourite meats, and don't you just love that George Foreman Grill!!! Awesome recipe!

    Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planing :-)

  8. I never thought to combine lime and rosemary! This sounds lovely and is getting pinned. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Featuring you tomorrow! Thanks for linking up to Inspiration Monday Party!

  10. I think this looks perfect just the way it is! I'd serve just like this with a side or two.

  11. LOVE lime! This looks delicious - I probably would slice it thin and serve it in romain lettuce on a wrap! Thank you, as always, for sharing with us on Merry Monday! We'll see you tonight! x Julia
