I love any excuse to grill, anytime of year. Just because fall has rolled in, does not mean that you should put away that grill! For some reason the thought of grilling always makes me really excited to cook. This is my “go-to” marinade. It makes the most delicious chicken.
After you take a bite you will be hooked.
My friend Jenny gave me this recipe and it became my favorite as soon as I took that first bite. Using this marinade, you will be constantly making amazing chicken. I like to cook up extra to use in salads and other meals I make throughout the week. Make sure and peek at our great grilling tips post and you will be ready to go.
Garlic Lemon Marinade
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp pepper
Mix ingredients together and pour over chicken and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Grill according to the type of chicken you are using.
*** I really like to grill with chicken tenderloins. I know they are smaller than chicken breasts but they are more forgiving with grilling and stay “tender” even if you overcook a little.***
