Get perfectly tender, juicy grilled chicken breasts by marinating the chicken in a simple mixture of olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and herbs and grilling over direct medium heat.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a medium bowl whisk the marinade ingredients.

Step 2

Place the breasts on a large, rimmed plate. Spoon or brush the marinade over the breasts, turning to coat them evenly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

Step 3

Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat.

Step 4

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chicken, smooth side down, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the meat is firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the center, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice. Serve warm.

I tried this recipe twice, just to make sure I followed everything the way I was supposed to, but it was still missing something. Even though the marinade smelled great, the taste was a bit bland. I gave this a second try, so now I'm just throwing away. Nothing wow for us.

Absolutely delicious!!! It's not very often that I make a meal that my whole family likes, but everyone LOVED this. I let it marinade for 2 hours and it tasted great. I will definitely be making this dish often.

I intended to make this for dinner on a tuesday, so I got in ready Tuesday morning (I put it in a quart size baggie). We ended up not cooking it until Wed/Thurs. It was okay, but not super. It seemed to be strong on the oregano flavor and lacking on the lemon. Not sure if this was because it had been extreme marinating or if I just didn't use enough lemon.
