Lemon Chicken

What You Need:

  • Lemon Pepper Season
  • Boneless, skinless thin-cut chicken breasts
  • 1 Large Lemon
  • Garlic Salt
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • A rimmed cookie sheet, pan or large platter to carry the food out to the grill.
  • Wash it well after placing food on the grill.

What You Do:

  1. Start your grill and prep it for med-high heat
  2. Pat the chicken dry
  3. Brush chicken with EVOO
  4. Sprinkle the garlic salt and Lemon Pepper Seasoning on both sides of the chicken
  5. Place the chicken on one side of pan or plate
  6. While chicken is soaking up the seasoning, zest half of the lemon
  7. Slice the lemon and put on the other side of the pan or plate with the chicken
  8. The grill should be ready and so take the chicken and lemon out to cook
  9. Spray the grates with a grill-rated cooking spray. Be careful of the lames!
  10. Place the chicken and lemons on the grill and close the lid
  11. Check the chicken every 2-3 minutes, they’re thin so they cook fast.
  12. Check the lemon slices, too. You want them charred but not burnt.
  13. You can either turn the chicken one-quarter turn for some great grill marks or just turn them over to cook the other side. Be careful not to overcook.
  14. This dish can be garnished with fresh Rosemary or Thyme and goes well with any veggie side: grilled broccoli, cob-corn, and charred tomato halves
