Grilled Chicken with Lemon, Garlic, and Oregano
For a fun presentation, serve with grilled lemon halves.
1/4 c. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. lemon zest, optional (amps up the lemon flavor nicely)
1/4 c. finely snipped oregano
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1/3 c. olive oil
Divide the vinaigrette in half. Pour one half into a ziplock baggie, and
Into the other half, whisk in 1/2 tsp. honey, and set aside.
Add 2 chicken breasts (I use boneless, skinless) to the ziplock baggie and allow to marinade at room temperature for 30-40 minutes. Turn bag a couple of times to make sure it is evenly marinated.
Preheat (medium temp.) and oil the grill. Pat the chicken with paper towels, and grill about 20 minutes, turning once. Be sure chicken is cooked through- juices will run clear, temperature will be at least 165 degrees at the thickest part.
Serve warm with a drizzle of the reserved vinaigrette.
