Yield Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 6 skinned and boned chicken breast halves

How to Make It

  1. Process first 8 ingredients in a blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides. Reserve 1/4 cup lemon mixture, and chill.

  2. Place chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top plastic bag; pour remaining lemon mixture over chicken. Cover or seal, and chill 2 hours, turning chicken occasionally.

  3. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade; place chicken on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan.

  4. Broil 7 inches from heat (with electric oven door partially open) 11 to 12 minutes on each side or until tender, basting chicken frequently with reserved 1/4 cup lemon mixture.
