Fire Chicken - Lemon BBQ Chicken

Lemon BBQ Chicken

The original name of this recipe is "Lemon BBQ Chicken". I call it "Fire Chicken" because when Chicken Legs puts it on the grill it flames up like this (from the oil in the marinade).

I love this chicken. It might be my favorite chicken marinade, and that is saying a lot since I am a self-proclaimed "chickitarian"! It is so tender and flavorful. It has a nice tangy flavor from the lemon. It is really simple to put together. I like to let it marinate overnight (it is easier to put together the night before and it tastes better the longer it marinates).  I usually cook extra chicken to eat the next day.

  2. Looks delish. We need more chix recipes...thanks. Going camping next weekend so we'll be cooking over the fire. Yum!!!��

  3. Are these boneless and skinless chicken breasts?

  4. Yes - I used boneless and skinless chicken. This would work with bone-in chicken as well. You just need to cook it longer. Enjoy!

  5. How many fresh lemons do you average to get the amount of juice needed?

  6. Hey Steph, can you tell/link me the spaghetti(?) recipe, your side on the plate? -Thanks

  7. Janet - it usually takes about 4-5 lemons to get 1/2 cup of juice. It will just depend on how big they are.

  8. unknown - that is a box of Noodle Roni - parmesan flavor I believe.
