Grilled Chicken Breasts With Onion Glaze

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Cookin-jo

The marinade for this chicken is delicious and the recipe makes a large quantity. Freeze half for later use or make just half the marinade. Try using a sweet onion for a sweeter flavour. From Weber's Real Grilling.

Very good recipe. First time I made it as written. And yes, the flavor is subtle.. but very good nonetheless. Second time, I tried turning into a "glaze" (or bbq sauce, of sorts)... 1/2ing the recipe, and leaving out the lemon for the glaze. Very very good. I think what would be perfect (next time) is making the full recipe, using 1/2 to marinade the chicken and the other as a glaze/sauce... Can't wait until next time. Thank you for posting.
