Okay, I admit I love lemons and this recipe definitely calls for a few of them. This recipe is our family’s favorite in the summer because it’s easy and extremely versatile. You can prepare the marinade the night before or even a few hours prior to when you plan to grill. I can guarantee that this will keep you out of the kitchen allowing you to relax a little while the kids play out in the backyard.
Grilled Lemon Chicken
4 freshly squeezed lemons
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tsp Kosher salt
1 tsp pepper
1 Tbl minced thyme leaves (optional)
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
1. Whisk together all ingredients except the chicken in a large ceramic or glass bowl. Place chicken breasts in bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Store in refrigerator for 3 hours or up to overnight.
2. Heat grill and cook for about 10 minutes on each side until cooked through. Remove chicken from grill and allow to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.
You can serve this plain, skewer it to make shish kabob or toss it atop some pasta.
Eat and enjoy!
