Recipe-Grilled Lemon Chicken


Grilled Lemon Chicken

Delicious, moist, oh so flavorful marinated grilled lemon chicken recipe. Adapted from family circle magazine.

Ingredients

Juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoonn white vinegar
2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
¼ cup olive oil
pounds boneless skinless
chicken breasts, pounded slightly
1 lemon, thinly sliced
cup Sliced black olives or
Kalamata
** I also make another batch of dressing , halved.. my adaptation to the recipe.

Directions

In a medium sized bowl, whisk lemon juice, vinegar, dill, basil, honey, dijon mustard, ¾ teaspoon salt, and pepper till well blended. In a slow stream, whisk in the olive oil until blended. ** My adaptation would be to make another ½ batch of this dressing and set aside for drizzling later.**

Place your chicken in a Ziploc. Add all your dressing to the ziploc, close and marinate.. I did for 5 hours. Turn a few times during marination.

Heat your gas grill to medium high or your charcoal grill with medium hot coals. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Grill chicken 5 to 6 minutes per side, turning once, until JUST done, you want it juicy, baby. Grill some slices alongside for presentation.

Place chicken on platter. Top with grilled lemon slices, some sliced black olives, the extra dressing, teeny bit of salt, and serve.
