Lemon Pepper is one of my favorite flavor combinations. I love the tangy kick! This Lemon Pepper Chicken is fabulous! SO good! It smelled incredible while it was cooking on the grill. I couldn’t wait to taste it. It tasted better than it smelled! I don’t know how that was possible, but it was!

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.**

  1. Question for you. What if you wanted to cook this indoors? How would the timing work for the oven or frying pan? Love your recipes, they are for real people

    1. I like to cook them in an oven safe skillet for 3 or 4 minutes per side and finish them off in the oven at 425 for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!!

  2. Tried this yesterday and it was delicious!!! I panicked as I realized later I had not pinned the recipe and spent a good part of my day looking for it again. IT IS THAT GOOD! I had a lemon pepper combo spice from PURE that was perfect!!

  3. I love that this only requires an hour — I can't ever seem to get things together enough to marinate overnight. This is perfect!
