For the Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  1. Create the Marinade:
    • In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, orange juice, minced garlic, chopped thyme, chopped rosemary, salt, and pepper. The combination of citrus and herbs will infuse the chicken with amazing flavor.
  2. Marinate the Chicken:
    • Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish.
    • Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring that each piece is thoroughly coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, allowing the flavors to meld.
  3. Preheat the Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking.
  4. Grill the Chicken:
    • Remove the chicken from the marinade, allowing any excess marinade to drip off.
    • Place the chicken on the preheated grill. Grill for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
  5. Achieve Grill Marks:
    • To create those sought-after grill marks, you can rotate the chicken breasts about halfway through the cooking time on each side.
  6. Rest and Serve:
    • Once cooked, transfer the grilled chicken to a clean plate.
    • Allow the chicken to rest for a few minutes. This resting period helps retain the juices, ensuring the meat remains tender and flavorful.
  7. Plate and Garnish:
    • Arrange the Citrus-Herb Grilled Chicken on a serving platter.
  8. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve your Citrus-Herb Grilled Chicken with a generous squeeze of fresh lemon or orange juice and garnish with additional chopped herbs for a burst of freshness.
