Step 1

In medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, zest, garlic, green onion, parsley, basil, salt and pepper. Pour into gallon-size zip-top bag. Add chicken and marinate 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 12 hours in the refrigerator (remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling).

Step 2

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and place on lightly oiled grill, cooking 5-8 minutes per side, or until chicken reaches a safe internal temperature of 165°F. Let chicken rest 3-5 minutes before serving. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I scaled back for 2 serves and cooked in a cast iron char grill pan and used a probe to let me know it was cooked but I had the pan a little to hot and it took on a burnt look but did not taste as though it was as the garlic and lemon flavours shone through though the chicken was a little on the dry side but still very enjoyable and my chicken breasts were just under 9 ounces each and took about 20 to 25 minutes to cook. Thank you TeresaS for a delightful dinner.
