Grilled Rosemary and Lemon Chicken

Ingredients:(Grilled Rosemary and Lemon Chicken)

6 chicken breasts, skinless and boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 3/4 pounds total)
1 teaspoon lemon peel, finely shredded
1/2 cup lime juice
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper

Directions:(Grilled Rosemary and Lemon Chicken)

Place chicken breast halves between two pieces of plastic wrap. Lightly pound with a meat mallet to an even 1/2-inch thickness. Place in a large resealable plastic bag.
For marinade, in a small bowl, stir together lemon peel, lime juice, rosemary, oil, sugar and garlic. Pour over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Season chicken with salt and pepper. For a charcoal grill, place chicken on the grill rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill uncovered for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender and no longer pink, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place chicken on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.).
Serve chicken with salad and lemon, adding a little bacon grease will improve flavor of your first batch of chicken.
