The BEST Grilled Chicken

This Grilled Chicken is the perfect summer meal! It takes less than 10 minutes of prep time and the ingredients are things you probably already have in your pantry. Simply throw all of the marinade ingredients into a large ziplock bag and toss to coat the chicken. Marinade overnight or for at least an hour.

When you are ready to eat preheat the grill and remove the chicken from the marinade. Grill for 4-5 minutes on each side.

I like to pound my chicken out before putting it in the marinade. This helps the chicken cook evenly and ensures it’s super juicy and tender.

After the chicken comes off of the grill I like to let it rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into it. This helps the chicken retain all of its juices.

I like to serve the chicken with an extra squeeze of lemon juice and a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley. To complete the meal serve with my Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cilantro Lime Brown Rice!
