Delicious Grilled Rosemary Garlic Lemon Chicken Thigh Recipe

I love to grill easy recipes, and this one is one of my favorites. Lemon gives the chicken a freshness, and the rosemary is so fragrant. When I was growing up, my mother was a big fan of these easy marinated dishes because they were so flavorful and easy to make in less than a half hour.

These are the ingredients. I used fresh rosemary and minced it. Using a Pyrex bowl with a lid works nicely to marinate meat.

Add all the ingredients into a bowl and marinate for 1-2 hours. The longer, the better when it comes to marinating. You can make it in the morning and store it in the refrigerator until you are ready to make it at night.

When ready to cook, place them on the grill for 30 minutes or until the chicken thighs reach 170 degrees. Ensure the grill is hot and cleaned before placing the meat on it.

And this is what it looked like after I finished the dish. Let it cool for a few minutes before enjoying it. This dish makes a wonderful next-day leftover lunch.

And here is the video if you want to watch the transformation.
