Rachael Ray's Honey-And-Lemon Marinated Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

This came from Everyday with Rachael Ray. She cooked this in the oven but I put it on the grill. I seared the chicken skin side down on direct heat until browned then flipped the chicken and cooked the breasts on indirect heat for around 30 minutes.

I am rating it a 5 star as it was great for us. We had 2 chicken breasts on a bbq after marinating for 3hrs and they were great and then the next day after they marinated for another day I cooked the other 2 breasts it in the oven in the marinade for 30mins as my chicken breasts were quite large and i didn't pre brown them so I did devate from the recipe though. Served with mashed potato & pumpkin mash & corn on the cob. Made for JUNE Beverage Tag: How Does Your Garden Grow?
