Lemon Pepper Iced Tea Chicken
This Lemon Pepper Iced Tea Chicken has the best marinade - tart, sweet, peppery, and garlicky!
- ½ cup unsweetened Pure Leaf Iced Tea
- Juice from one lemon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper, the kind you grind yourself
- 1 fresh rosemary sprig
- 4 (6 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts or cutlets, (1 ½ lbs total)
Combine all marinade ingredients in a one gallon Ziploc bag and stir until well combined. Add the chicken breasts to the bag and coat with the marinade. Make sure the breasts are covered in marinade and refrigerate for 8 hours.
Pre-heat the grill until hot (ours was set at medium temperature). Remove the breasts from the marinade and place on the hot grill. Cook through, flipping as needed. Ours took 10-12 minutes to cook but depending on your grill, cooking times may vary.

*Just a note about the nutrition information and Weight Watchers Points for this recipe: If you plug the full amounts of the marinade ingredients listed into a nutrition calculator you will get different nutrition info than I have listed. Since so much of the marinade gets thrown out, I decided to weigh the marinade before adding the chicken and then again after removing the chicken the next day and calculate the nutritional values based on the amount of marinade that actually gets consumed. The totals above should be pretty accurate reflections of what actually makes it onto your plate!
