Not this recipe. Follow these simple steps for juicy chicken that’s full of flavor.

This marinade uses simple ingredients that you can easily find in your fridge and pantry. Olive oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a little parsley and garlic is all you need.

I like to use boneless, skinless chicken breasts sliced into cutlets or tenders for this recipe because the thicker the chicken breast the longer it takes to marinate. 

Cutlets and tenders marinate quicker and the flavor really penetrates the chicken. A hour is all you need.

Don’t marinade it any longer because you don’t want it to “cook” from the lemon juice before chargrilling.

Chargrill the chicken in less than 10 minutes and pair it with a Tomato Caprese Salad or Couscous with Roasted Veggies.
