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.

Grilled Chicken Marinade

This marinade is the perfect combination of sweet and tangy. It reminds me a bit of Italian dressing without the herbs!

  • Vegetable oil
  • Red wine vinegar
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Honey
  • Lemon juice
  • Lemon zest
  • Dijon mustard
  • Pepper and salt

How to make The BEST Grilled Chicken

  • Marinate chicken: Add all of the marinade ingredients along with the chicken to a large ziplock bag. Seal the bag and toss to coat the chicken. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour or overnight.
  • Grill: When you are ready to eat preheat the grill to medium high heat. Spray the grill with nonstick cooking spray. Cook the chicken flipping half way through until fully cooked (about 8 minutes depending on thickness).
  • Serve: Immediately with an extra squeeze of lemon and fresh chopped parsley, if desired.

Tips

  • 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 grilled chicken breast is done cooking I like to let it rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into it. This helps the chicken retain all of its juices.
  • Feel free to add in fresh herbs to the marinade. Fresh rosemary or thyme would be amazing!
