I recently had the opportunity to cook for my family a couple of times, and this was one of the meals I made. It was delicious! I love when other people enjoy my food - it makes me so happy! Truthfully, my brother manned the grill until they were perfectly 160F inside. Photo credit to my dad!
Grilled Greek Lemon Chicken
from Cooking Classy
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup olive oil, plus more to rub on the grill grates
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/3 cup lemon juice
4 cloves garlic, minced (1 1/2 tbsp)
2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound the thicker parts of the chicken to an even thickness (I made mine under 1", maybe less than 3/4" - this is so it cooks evenly). In a mixing bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix together everything but the chicken. Place the chicken in a large resealable bag and pour in the liquid and herbs. Mush it around to evenly coat chicken. Press all of the air out and seal. Place in the refrigerator for 2-5 hours, mushing again and rotating the chicken half way through. Preheat the grill over medium-high heat (425-450F). Brush the grill grates lightly with oil. Place the chicken on the grill, close the lid, and cook chicken 4 minutes per side until it registers 160-165F in the center of each breast. When it's done, let the chicken rest for 5 minutes, then serve.
