This clean-eating Grilled Lemon Rosemary Chicken recipe is easy to make, healthy and bursting with lemony flavor! (This post is sponsored by Foster Farms®, the opinions expressed are my own.)
We eat a LOT of chicken at our house. In fact, it’s my go-to protein for dinner. Chicken teriyaki, chicken burgers, chicken casserole…the list goes on and on. Since it’s such an important part of my family’s diet, I make sure to buy good quality, fresh chicken.
Foster Farms is my favorite brand to buy. I can find it at every supermarket I shop at, readily available. It’s always comparable in price to other brands, and it tastes fresh and delicious. Foster Farms is family-owned and operated since 1939. All of their fresh chicken is locally grown to the West Coast and is American Humane Certified. They just introduced the Organic and Simply Raised antibiotic free lines and I am a huge fan.
As a mom of four boys, we go through a lot of food. 😉 I like to feed them meals that are less processed and full of healthy ingredients. Clean eating is becoming more and more popular, especially when it comes to meat. With 85% of parents stating that their criteria for buying meat and poultry has changed over the last several years and 42% cited having a child as the primary reason (based on an independent survey conducted by Metrix Lab).
I think most parents would agree that we don’t want our kids eating chemicals and added hormones! So I buy Foster Farms chicken. My favorite is their Simply Raised. There are no antibiotics administered – EVER and the chickens are 100% vegetarian fed and American Humane Certified. The chicken is 100% natural (minimally processed, no additives or preservatives, steroids or hormones) and produced with no added sodium. Plus, it’s locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA which is great for me, living in California!
Liked I said earlier, we love chicken dinners. This Grilled Lemon Rosemary Chicken is such an easy favorite of ours. It’s an elegant-looking, yet simple dinner with few ingredients that always comes out tasting amazing.
Mix olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, fresh rosemary and a little S&P in a large plastic baggie and let marinate for a couple of hours. Heat your grill to medium-high heat and grill your chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165º. Add a slice of lemon to the top if you want a little extra lemon boost.
The outcome is a tender, flavorful, healthy chicken breast that you can proudly serve your family and/or friends! You will love this easy summer dinner!
- 2 lbs. Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken I used thin sliced breast fillets
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic minced
- zest from one lemon
- juice from one lemon about 1/4 cup
- 3/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
- 2 large sprigs rosemary I take the leaves off one of the sprigs and leave the other one whole
- Combine all ingredients in a large baggie and store in the refrigerator for about 3 hours.
- Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place chicken breasts on hot grill and top with a slice of lemon. Close grill lid and let cook for several minutes, only opening to flip over.
- Cook until internal temperature of chicken is 165º. Pull off grill and let rest for a few minutes then serve and enjoy!

I love lemon and rosemary on chicken – we go through a ton of chicken too! This grilled meal is just perfect for summer!
Thank you for sharing this recipe. I’m gonna try making some in my kitchen. White meat is good too because it’s packed with protein and less fat.
