  • Set aside to cool.
  • Place garlic in a small microwave-safe cup and pour in the olive oil. Cover with plastic wrap.
  • Microwave on high for 1 min or until the garlic is soft.
  • When the lemon is cool enough to handle, scrape away the flesh and pith with a teaspoon, and discard.
  • Place the peel, lemon juice, garlic with oil and all remaining ingredients (except chicken) in a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until a wet paste forms.

  • Heat the grill or grill pan to medium high.
  • Place the chicken on the grill, skin side down and grill for 4-5 minute.
