My Favorite Grilled Lemon Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by hollyfrolly

Ina Garten's fantastically EASY (we won't forget flavorful and juicy!) grilled lemon chicken. Recipe from The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. (I love to serve this with a crisp green salad and a glass of white wine. -Yum!) **Time does not include marinating hours**

My mother found this recipe in one of my Barefoot Contessa books and made it. My picky eater son absolutely loves it. I especially like it with Ina Garten's 'couscous' recipe from the same book ( a lovely combination). You'll really love this recipe.
