This Lemon Pepper Chicken only has a few ingredients and is ready for the grill in about an hour. Unlike most of our other chicken marinades, this one doesn't need to sit overnight in the fridge. The lemon juice will break down the chicken and make it mushy. Boo! It only needs about an hour to get great flavor. Throw this on the grill for a quick, easy and CRAZY delicious chicken. We like to double the recipe for leftovers. It is great on a salad or in a quesadilla.
**Don't forget my tip for grilling perfectly cooked and juicy chicken - pound the chicken to an even thickness. We put the chicken in a ziplock bag and use a meat mallet to pound out the thicker hump. This helps the chicken cook evenly and not dry out. This eliminates the thinner part drying out while you are trying to get the thicker end cooked.**
