Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow bowl. For marinade, in a small bowl, combine oil, garlic, lemon peel, thyme, rosemary, crushed red pepper, salt and black pepper. Pour marinade over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.

  • Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Place chicken on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (165 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling. If desired, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs and lemon wedges.

This chicken turned out amazing! The flavors of the marinade really got into the chicken and the chicken was moist and tender. I have no leftovers because my son that doesn't like chicken ate it all - it was that good! I didn't have 2-4 hours to marinade chicken so I cut my chicken breast into smaller strips and then gave them about 30 minutes to marinade while I prepped the rest of the meal and got the grill going.
