Lemon and Garlic Grilled Chicken

This is one of those recipes you are so happy you got ready the day before because dinner ends up being a breeze the day you actually make it.  I recommend marinating this for about 24 hours if you can.  I pan fried mine on the stove, but on the bbq would be great.  It has the best lemon flavor without being too overpowering.  This would be delicious served over a salad as well.  Stay tuned for the Rice Pilaf recipe I used as a side.  

Lemon and Garlic Grilled Chicken


1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 lb. chicken breasts


Combine all ingredients in a large ziplock bag and add chicken.  Place in fridge overnight. Grill or pan fry when ready.

You can also place frozen chicken in the bag of marinade and put back in freezer for later use.  I used 8 of the thinly sliced frozen chicken breasts from Costco because they cook fast and hold the marinade better.
