Summer Recipe Rerun ~ Grilled Lemon Chicken

1 Comment

I posted this recipe at the start of this blog about 2 years ago and it is still one of our very favorite grilling recipes.  I have served this many times to company and at parties and barbecues.  It’s easy and delicious!  Just double, triple, quadruple, or whatever.

I am sorry about the bad picture ~ blame the photographer,  LOL!

Grilled Lemon Chicken

1 lemon, juice of
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 medium sized boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1/3 cup pitted kalamata olives

In a medium bowl, whisk lemon juice, vinegar, dill, basil, honey, mustard, olive oil, 3/4 teaspoons of the salt and the pepper until well blended. Place chicken in a large resealable bag. Add 1/3 cup of the dressing and half of the thinly sliced lemon. Seal bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours, turning at least once.

Stir in the remaining lemon slices and olives into the reserved dressing and store in the refrigerator.

Remove chicken from bag and grill at medium-high until chicken is completely cooked.

Remove from grill to platter and pour reserved dressing over the chicken and season with remaining salt.

Makes 6 servings.

Happy Cooking!
