Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Recipe

This recipe makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • Chopped fresh parsley (for garnish)

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, combine olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix well to create a flavorful marinade.

  2. Place the chicken breasts in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure each piece is coated evenly. Seal the bag or cover the dish and let the chicken marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor).

  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and discard any excess marinade.

  5. Grill the chicken breasts for about 6-8 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (75°C) and the chicken is cooked through.

  6. Once cooked, remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

  7. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for an extra burst of color and flavor.
