Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts

Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts
Summer is synonymous with grilling out, but sometimes, I want an option other than burgers and hot dogs. Grilled chicken is one of my favorite go-to meals in the summer, because it’s light, easy, and completely delicious.

These Herb Grilled Chicken Breasts have such a great mix of flavors. There’s lemon juice, a little heat from the crushed red pepper, and a wonderful savory flavor from the rosemary. This would be great alongside potatoes or grilled vegetables, or you could even put it on a bun and turn it into a grilled chicken sandwich. Regardless of how you serve it, this chicken is sure to please.
