We’ve had some beautiful weather for the past few weekends. We’ve fired up the grill for lunch several times. We made this chicken last weekend, and it was SO delicious. The marinade is super simple and has tons of great flavor. You can use any type of chicken you have on hand. We used chicken breasts, but this would also be delicious on chicken thighs or even drumsticks. A tip on grilling chicken breasts – pound the chicken to an even thickness before marinating. It helps to cook the chicken evenly and not have the skinny end dry out while waiting on the thicker end to cook.

This chicken is on repeat at our house. I’ve been doubling the recipe so we can eat leftovers for lunch during the week. We like to serve the chicken with potatoes, rice, or asparagus. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this Lemon Garlic Marinade:

  1. I do this in the crock pot – put (2 lbs) boneless breasts into the crock pot along with the marinade they've been sitting in and cook on high for 4 hours – delish!! One time I added a small bag of frozen cut green beans about an hour before the chicken was done and it was really good that way!!

  2. Looks delicious Steph! Can't wait for this rainy week to end so we can bust out the grill 🙂
