Grilled Greek Lemon Chicken

Ingredients

  • 4 (6 oz) boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus more for brushing grill
  • 1 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced (1 1/2 Tbsp)
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary, crushed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Chopped fresh parsley, for serving

Instructions

  • Using the flat side of a meat mallet, pound thicker parts of chicken to even thickness. In a small mixing bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary and season with salt and pepper (about 1 tsp salt 1/2 tsp pepper).
  • Place chicken in a gallon size resealable bag, pour in olive oil mixture. Seal bag while pressing air out. Rub marinade over chicken. Transfer to refrigerator and allow to marinate 2 – 5 hours (rotate bag and move chicken around halfway through if possible). Preheat grill over medium-high heat (to about 425 – 450).
  • Brush grill grates lightly with olive oil. Place chicken on grill, close lid, and grill about 4 minutes per side, or until chicken registers 160 – 165 degrees in center of chicken on an instant read thermometer. Let chicken rest 5 minutes, garnish with fresh parsley then serve immediately.
