  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • cup oil
  • juice of 2 lemons (about 6 tablespoons)
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Whisk together oil, honey, garlic powder, salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper.
  • Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Add half of the sauce mixture and seal the bag. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight. Reserve remaining sauce.
  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from bag and discard the bag and marinade. Place chicken on grill and cook 5-7 minutes on each side until cooked through.
  • While chicken is cooking (or immediately afterwards) add reserved sauce to small sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5-6 minutes.
  • Drizzle sauce over grilled chicken and serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh herbs if desired (I used fresh basil).


Marinate at least one hour, or up to 8 hours for even more flavor.
