I've been experimenting with lots of grilled chicken recipes and found this one from a Rachel Ray collection to be a winner. It's fast, easy and tasty. (tip: do not add zest if you do not want it too lemony)


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the first five ingredients.
  2. Add chicken and toss to coat evenly.
  3. Marinate for five minutes.
  4. Grill. (the usual 6-7 minutes per side).
  5. Remove from heat and let rest for 2-3 minutes.

Great marinade! So simple and easy but full of flavor. I used one clove of garlic and marinated the chicken for about 3 hours.

I made this when I was in a time crunch and didn't have time to marinate. My grilled chicken salad was fabulous. Thanks for sharing Amie!

It doesn't get easier or better than this. I left out the zest but next time I'll add it in for more lemon flavour. We loved all the garlic!
