Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken

Grilled Lemon Herb Chicken

I was in a pinch last week for a quick dinner option. Summer evenings can be a difficult time to get a healthy meals on the table quickly. I thawed some chicken thighs and place them along with the marinade ingredients in a zip lock before work in the morning. I quickly grilled the meat when I got home in the evening. Within 20 minutes we had this AMAZING meal on the table!

Ingredients

1 pound chicken breast of thighs (I used thighs because they keep their moisture when grilling)

Marinade

1 1/2 tbsp garlic infused olive oil

1 tbsp organic thyme

1 tbsp organic oregano

3-4 cloves crushed garlic

3 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp ground pepper

1 fresh sliced lemon

Directions

1. Place marinade ingredients in a zip lock along with the chicken. Let it marinate for a least 30 minutes (all day or overnight is preferred – the longer the better).

2. Grill chicken for 15-20 minutes until no longer pink. Garnish with fresh sliced lemon.

3. Pairing options are grilled or broiled asparagus drizzled with garlic olive oil, salt, and pepper. You can also add a fresh green salad and seasonal fruit as sides. Melons, berries, or peaches are all in season! Yum!
