Lemon Grilled Chicken

DSCN2636-1A delicious mouthwatering marinade containing a trio of herbs, gives these golden chicken breasts a unique and tantalizing flavor.

1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley + extra sprigs for garnish
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 ounces each)

1. Using a peeler, remove strips of zest from half of the lemon; trim into fine strips with a small knife. Grate the other half of the lemon to make 1 tablespoon of zest. Squeeze the juice from the lemon into a small bowl.

2. In a large bowl, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, parsley, thyme, marjoram, salt and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and toss to coat well; cover and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes or overnight.

3. Preheat the grill, griddle or broiler. Place chicken on grill; reserve the marinade. Cook until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes on each side brushing with marinade 2 to 3 times during cooking. Sprinkle with reserved lemon strips; garnish with parsley sprigs and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

  • Hi Emily, I came by to see what’s cooking. This a great way to grill chicken. Believe it or not we have 63 degree weather outside today. It feels like we have not had a winter at all this year. Everything is budding. It is crazy. We will probably have a cold spell and ruin spring. Sigh!

    Happy days and happy cooking.
    Hugs, Jeanne
