Yield: 4 servings

This tender grilled chicken is glazed with a sweet-tangy blend of honey and lemon.


  • Cooking spray for grilling
  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 oz. each)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary


  1. Spray an outdoor grill grate and utensils with grilling spray. Heat grill to medium heat.
    Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  2. Mix honey, lemon juice, rosemary and remaining salt in a small bowl until well-blended. Remove half of honey mixture; set aside for serving with cooked chicken.
  3. Grill chicken for 10 minutes, turning over after 5 minutes. Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture during last 5 minutes of cooking.
  4. Cut chicken diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices to serve; top with reserved honey mixture.
Serve with Warm Tomato and Cucumber Salad.
