How to Make Lemon Rosemary Chicken Marinade

In a large bowl or one gallon storage bag, put in 1/4 cup of EVOO, 3 tbsp of chopped fresh Rosemary, 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice, 6 cloves of minced fresh garlic and 1 tsp of Kosher salt. Add the boneless skinless chicken breast and store in your refrigerator for at least 2 hours but, 3-4 hours renders the best flavor!
Then, just grilled the marinated chicken for 10-15 min on your preheated grill. That’s it!
Can I make grilled chicken in the Air Fryer?
Yes. For this recipe, place the chicken drained from marinade, into the air fryer and bake on 400F for 20 minutes or until the juices run clear. How long to bake the chicken in the air fryer depends upon how big are the chicken pieces. Bigger pieces of boneless chicken will need to cook longer. When checking if the chicken is done, always check the thickest part of the chicken.
