Ingredients You Need

Cut boneless chicken breasts into halves lengthwise to make them thinner. No need to pound your chicken breast!


Place chicken breast in large bowl with olive oil, garlic, lemon juice and zest, oregano, salt and pepper. Stir with tongs.


Marinate as little as 30 minutes to as long as 24 hours. This allows enough time for the marinade to flavor and tenderize your meat.


Preheat grill on medium-high and rub with oiled paper towel. Place chicken on the grill, close lid and grill chicken breasts for 8-10 minutes turning once.


Chicken is done when meat thermometer reads 165 degrees F. Or I usually cut in with a knife and if juices are no longer pink.


Remove from grill, cover with foil and rest for 5 minutes. This allows juices to settle inside the meat for juicy chicken!


Enjoy on it's own, with your favorite sides, or in a grilled chicken salad!



Refrigerate covered for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. Reheat in microwave.
