Directions

  1. Mix lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a bowl; pour into a sealable plastic bag. Add the chicken to the bag, coat with the marinade, and squeeze air from the bag before sealing. Refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.
  4. Cook chicken on hot grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

We loved this. Juicy and tender, bright, fresh flavor. I used dill rather than oregano for its milder, more subtle flavor and marinated the chicken for just over three hours. I sliced them up and served them over a big, tossed green salad with a homemade Barbecue Ranch dressing. Hubs made a point of mentioning that he generally doesn't like marinades but that this was a "make again" - but he said I never "make it again" when he tells me to "make it again." This was so easy and so good that I will have to make a point to please him and make it again.

Marinated for about 6 hours and cooked on the grill. Very juicy and flavorful, but I would have liked a bit more lemon flavor. Recipe does specify "8 hours or overnight," so that could have been my issue, not the recipe's. Next time I'll marinate overnight. Not to worry, though, it was all good and all eaten!

It was delicious. Even my picky eater boyfriend liked it. Instead of 1 tsp of Oregano I used 1/2 tsp Oregano and I think it was the perfect amount for my taste. And it sat marinating overnight, instead of 8 hours it turned out to be more like 14 hours. The taste was strong which I like, but you could still get the chicken flavor. Will definitely make this again in the future.
