Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken

serves 4

This is so lemony and herby. Every time I make it I wonder why I don’t make it more often!?

It goes wonderfully with my Apple, Celery and Snap Pea Salad! Very fresh and summery!

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon zest

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro

2 tablespoons finely chopped italian parsley

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary

1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme

1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh oregano

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 cloves garlic, minced

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2 inch thick

In a small bowl combine all ingredients except chicken. Place chicken breasts in a ziplock bag,

pour in marinade and massage into chicken. Let marinate in refrigerator for up to 2 hours.

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Coat grill with cooking spray. Remove breasts from marinade

and pat dry a bit (just so the oil is not dripping into the flames). Place on grill and cook until

cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Let rest 5 minutes before serving.
