Full recipe from : yummly.com

Bring an outdoor grill to high heat.
Drizzle the chicken breasts with extra virgin olive oil and rub into the breasts. Season generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place the chicken breasts on the hot grill. Cover and cook for 10 minutes then flip the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. Add the lemon halves to the grill, cut side down, and cook for 3-5 minutes then move the lemon halves to the top rack of the grill. Turn off one side of the grill and move the chicken to the other side and cook for 10 more minutes or until the breasts have an internal temperature of 165-170 degrees. The length of cooking time will depend up on the thickness of the breasts.
Remove from grill with the lemon halves. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Squeeze the lemon on the chicken if desired for extra flavor.
