Grilled Lemon-Oregano Chicken

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 drumstick and 1 thigh)
Because the lemon juice and olive oil mixture is so flavorful, you don't need to marinate the chicken--just brush the mixture on after chicken is grilled.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken drumsticks (about 1 pound), skinned
  • 4 chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds), skinned
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
