Grilled Tuscan Chicken with Rosemary, Orange and Lemon

Basting the chicken with lemon juice while it’s grilling gives it a tangy taste, and the orange juice adds a touch of sweetness. For the marinade, steeping the rosemary and thyme in hot water intensifies the flavor of the herbs. This is a perfect recipe for grilling during the summer, as the orange it gives it a sweet flavor in the back making it refreshing… We loved it!
