Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken

Total Time

Found this recipe way back in the Taste of Home's Quick Cooking magazine and tweaked it for my family's taste. I have pounded the chicken breasts before I marinated them and fixed them on the Foreman Grill. It takes little time to prepare marinade but it needs to marinate for 6-8 hours then cook for 1 hour or until the chicken juice is clear.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large plastic bag, combine the first eight ingredients; mix well. Remove 1/4 cup for basting and refrigerate.
  2. Add chicken to the bag; seal and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours.
  3. Drain and discard the marinade from chicken. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 20 minutes. Baste with the reserved marinade. Grill 20-30 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting and turning several times.
  4. The original recipe said you can bake the chicken in the oven for 50-60 minutes at 350 degree oven uncovered in a greased 13"x9" pan. (Turns out great!).

This came out very good! I upped the garlic to 4 cloves and used my homegrown Meyers lemons. Loved it! I baked it in the oven instead of grilling. Made for PAC Spring 2012.

Delicious when grilled and 1 hour marinating time was sufficient to impart flavor and tenderness to boneless, skinless, pounded-to-even-thinness breast halves.
