GRILLED LEMON GARLIC CHICKEN

 
INGREDIENTS
  • 6 Tbsp. lemon juice (fresh, from 2 lemons)
  • 6 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic (from 3-4 cloves)
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breasts trimmed into strips
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Line a small/medium sized bowl with a gallon Ziploc bag, folding the top of the bag over the sides of the bowl.
  2. Add the lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper to the bag.
  3. Seal the bag and gently knead the bag from the outside to mix the contents.
  4. Unseal and put the bag back into the bowl, again folding the top of the bag over the sides of the bowl.
  5. As you trim your chicken tenders or breasts, drop them right into the bag in the bowl. When done, seal the bag up.
  6. Again, use your hands to gently knead the bag from the outside to mix the marinade and chicken thoroughly.
  7. Put the bag in the bowl, and place the bowl in the fridge to marinate for 6-8 hours. This way, if you by chance have any leak from the bag, it will be caught in the bowl, so you don't end up with a messy fridge!
  8. After marinating, remove chicken from bag and place on grill over direct heat.
  9. Grill chicken over direct heat for 1 minute each side. Then move to top rack/indirect heat and grill for 8 minutes, flipping partway through if desired.
  10. Discard bag and remaining marinade. Do not reuse.
  11. Serve with your favorite sides!
