  • 1/2 tsp roasted cinnamon
  • 8 cloves of garlic smashed with flat side of knife
  • 6 whole sprigs of fresh rosemary


  • Place the chicken into a large Ziploc baggie.
  • Prep the lemons and garlic
  • In a large bowl mix: lemon juice, olive oil, salt and spices. Pour into the bag over chicken.
  • Add lemon halves, garlic and rosemary. Remove all air from the bag and seal.
  • Smoosh all the ingredients around inside the bag to ensure that the chicken is well coated and the ingredients are well incorporated throughout the bag.
  • Marinate (turning occasionally) for 1 hour to overnight.
  • Heat up your grill and cook evenly on both sides, about 7 minutes per side, or until the juices run clear - or the internal temp reaches 165° F
