I used skinless/boneless chicken thighs and they were great!! This marinade is a really good "go to" recipe and would be good for seafood or pork. We enjoyed these with rice and a fresh green salad. Made for ZWT8. Thanks FloridaNative!

  1. Mix the Worcestershire sauce, lemon zest, salt, dry mustard, and oregano in a small bowl. Gradually stir in the lemon juice, followed by the oil and chopped green onions.
  2. Brush the mixture over the chicken pieces. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. Prepare a charcoal grill or gas grill.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place skin side down on the grill. (Set 3 to 6 inches from charcoal that has reached the light gray ash stage).
  5. Cook 30 minutes for breast halves and 40 minutes for thighs, turning every 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Serving size: 1 breast half or 1 leg and 1 thigh.
