Grilled Chicken with Lemon and Garlic

Whether you grill indoors or out, this recipe is a year-round winner.



⅓ cup olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1 teaspoon kosher salt


6 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • Whisk the marinade ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Place the chicken in a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over. Place the bag in a bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Prepare an outdoor grill for direct cooking over medium heat (or preheat a grill pan over medium heat on stovetop). Remove the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Grill until the chicken is cooked through, turning once, 6 to 8 minutes each side.
