Juicy chicken, full of marinated flavor, and cooked on the grill to perfection. A great way to usher in spring, welcoming the warm weather by heading out to dust off your grill. This recipe is excellent in cold weather too, especially if you are a winter griller like me. The marinade is simple, and actually very similar to this lemon juice and herb marinade that I use for pork chops all the time. Both marinades will work on either meat.
This recipe uses a disposable aluminum roasting pan, but you can grill however you choose. I found this method to produce juicy, tender results. Two more of my favorite grilled chicken recipes are these Garlic-Marinated Chicken Cutlets and this Chipotle chicken recipe.
