Marinated Lemon Grilled Herb Crusted Chicken Breast Recipe

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

Grilling is the easiest way to cook. There is no mess to clean in a pan, no worries with cooking in grease or fat and then it's still is flavorful and tender. Here is a quick marinade to make sure you have the finest grilling experience for that breast of chicken. The herbs are added later with an olive oil brushing to frost it with.

4 large thick chicken breasts boneless
2 fresh squeezed lemons (saving the juice)
3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon sea salt or regular
1/2 teaspoon black freshly grated pepper
pinch of cayenne pepper
3 tablespoon olive oil
zip lock bag gallon size

Place the chicken in a zip lock bag with all the above ingredients and refrigerate overnight or at least 3 hours.

Heat the grill to hot.  Cook chicken breasts until juices run clear around 12 minutes on each side on high.

In a small bowl mix 4 tablespoons olive oil, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 tablespoons minced chopped parsley, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder,  pinch of dried basil, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1 tablespoon white wine or sherry, 1/4 teaspoon each red pepper flakes,  black pepper, salt and 1 tablespoon grating cheese.  Mix all together, brush the chicken after its cooked and serve. You can also use this as a dipping sauce. If it gets too dry add more olive oil.
