  • 8 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary

  • 1 ½ tablespoons Dijon mustard

  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon kosher salt

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves


  1. Whisk garlic, oil, rosemary, mustard, lemon juice, pepper, and salt together in a bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for basting.

  2. Place chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag. Pour remaining garlic mixture over top; seal the bag and massage marinade into chicken. Let stand for 30 minutes at room temperature.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Remove chicken from marinade and shake off excess. Discard remaining marinade.

  5. Cook chicken on the preheated grill for 4 minutes. Turn, baste with reserved marinade, and continue to grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  6. Transfer chicken to a plate and cover with foil. Let rest for at least 2 minutes before serving.
