Oh boy, where do I even start with this beautiful bird? This little number is absolutely swimming with zesty, garlicky goodness, all thanks to our prodigious little friends – lemons and garlic.

Now, to kick it up a notch, let’s marinate that chicken! Wham! Into a gallon plastic bag it goes. We’re talking freshly-squeezed lemon juice here, folks; the stuff that’ll make your chicken sing. Toss in generous doses of tangy mustard and minced garlic. And don’t forget a splash of hardcore olive oil! Zip it, shake it, park it in the fridge, and voila! You’ve just given your chicken a license to chill.

Once our lucky chicken is having a swell time luxuriating in the marinade, get that grill fired up! A little trick? Oil the grates to prevent any sticky situations – let’s keep our cool under the grill, s’il vous plait!

Slide your chicken onto the grill, and let it do the sizzle dance over medium heat. Flip it every now and then, get those grill marks just right, and you’ve got a gold-medal dinner coming right up.

Long story short, this isn’t just any grilled chicken. This my friend, is a taste odyssey—a zesty, flavorful joyride with every bite! The Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken isn’t just food; it’s a red-hot fiesta on a plate! Get on this zest wave and discover a whole new level of chicken delight.

Cluck, Pluck, Luck: Your Chicken Masterpiece Awaits!

– Start by gathering the needed ingredients which are; 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, juice of 2 lemons, 1/4 cup of olive oil, 1/4 cup of dijon mustard, 4 garlic cloves (minced), salt and pepper to taste, and fresh parsley.
– Begin the recipe by combining the lemon juice, olive oil, dijon mustard, minced garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl to create your marinade.
– Pour this prepared marinade into a gallon-sized ziplock bag.
– Add raw chicken breasts into the same ziplock bag with the marinade.
– Securely seal the ziplock bag, then shake it well to ensure the marinade thoroughly coats each chicken breast.
– Refrigerate for at least 2 hours for the chicken to absorb the flavors; although, leaving it marinating overnight will yield the best results.
– Preheat the grill to medium heat.
– Lightly oil the grill grates before adding the marinated chicken.
– Grill the marinated chicken breasts for 6 minutes on each side or until they are thoroughly cooked and clear juices run out.
– Lastly, garnish with fresh parsley and an extra squeeze of fresh lemon for a zingy finish.
– Enjoy your Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken, either as is or paired with your favorite sides!
