May 19th, 2012 | Lemon & Garlic Herb Chicken

Time for part 3 of the Mother’s Day dinner recipes! This is the best chicken I have ever tasted. I’m not even kidding here, it is. My mom said the same thing. Once again, just like the salad dressing, the marinade can be made days in advanced and is the star of the show.

Lemon & Garlic Herb Marinade

Ingredients

• 6 tbsp olive oil
• 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 1/2 tsp thyme
• 1tsp oregano
• 1 1/4 tsp sea salt
• 1/2 tsp pepper
• 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
• lemon zest

Spices: parsley, garlic powder, lemon & pepper seasoning to taste.

Method

1. Marinate the chicken in the sauce in plastic baggies for at least 2 hours, up to 12. We marinated ours for about 4.5 and the flavour was amazing. You really want the garlic & herbs to sink into the meat. Grill & enjoy!

You want to used thin, boneless chicken breasts for this one. Grill for about 5 min per side on high. Lightly dust with garlic powder & pepper once done. I truly mean it when I say I’ve never had chicken this good.
