Lemon Marinated Chicken Breasts

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

This marinade produces a very moist chicken breast with lots of flavor, no need to marinate for more than 2-3 hours, or the acid in the lemon will start to "cook" the chicken. Adjust the hot sauce to taste. This recipe can be doubled if desired.

Tired of the same old boring grilled chicken, I cringed when my husband requested it for dinner. Pulled up this recipe and LOVED the results. Even the process was fun and gave me a chance to get my 6 year old involved. We threw the ingredients into my nutribullet, gave it a whirl and out came a creamy and tasty marinade. In the fridge for 2 hours, onto the grill and everyone ate it up. My 7 year old said this is the only way he now wants his chicken :) Thank you Kittencal... you've done it again!!! I don't know why I try anyone else's recipes when yours are great everytime. God bless :)

  5. Season the chicken with seasoned salt and more black pepper.
