Grilled Lemon Chicken

1 package of whole cut up chicken
1/2 cup of olive oil, or enough to coat all pieces
zest from 2 lemons
juice from 2 lemons
1 lemon cut in half
3-4 cloves of minced garlic
1 Tbsp. of rosemary leaves, minced
Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Season chicken with salt & pepper. In a bowl ( large enough to hold all the chicken too) combine oil, lemon zest,lemon juice, garlic, and rosemary. Place seasoned chicken in the dish and marinade for at leat 2 hours. Turn the chicken once while marinading. Once you're ready to cook, set your grill on low. Grill chicken 30-35 minutes or until completely cooked, depends on grill. When there is approx. 10 minutes left of cooking time place the lemon halves on the grill. Remove chicken from grill and allow it to rest for 10 min. Drizzle grilled lemon juice over the chicken and dust with sea salt again.
