Directions

  1. Whisk 1 cup lemon juice, olive oil, and marjoram together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add chicken and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally, for 2 hours. Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade.
  2. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over high heat. Cook chicken in hot oil until almost burned on each side and no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove skillet from heat and sprinkle chicken breasts with remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

The flavors were good - lemon was prominent but not overpowering, and the seasoning tasted good with the lemon. These came out moist and tender. The only changes I made were to marinate it in a freezer ziplock bag, because I feel that coats the chicken better and to use garlic-infused grape seed oil in the marinade because I ran out of olive oil. This is a simple recipe, perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. I threw the chicken in the marinade before the gym and cooked chicken for 10 minutes after the gym. I could have maybe cooked it another minute on each side for an even darker color, but it was still very tasty! Served with a side of Thin Spaghetti with Garlic, Red Pepper, and Olive Oil (see other recipe from AR). I will definitely make this chicken again soon!

Very flavorful! I added a little basil but that was really the only change I made. Leftovers were great on salad the next day.
