can you believe this is the third time i’m posting this week – three days in a row! since work has been pretty busy, there are days when i come home from work and just don’t feel like looking at a computer anymore, which keeps me from posting here and also reading other people’s amazing blogs. that makes me sad. so i’m going to try to push through and post more often and get back into reading my favorite blogs on a more regular basis. fingers crossed i can keep this momentum going…
so about this grilled lemon chicken – it’s actually supposed to be grilled lemon chicken kabobs but i forgot to bring the skewers to tammy’s condo on monday. oops! it’s okay though because we grilled them on her grill pan and they turned out wonderfully.
tammy actually marinated the chicken the night before and she said it was super easy. awesome! the lemon flavor was awesome, making it feel light and fresh. we enjoyed the lemon chicken with our homemade pita bread and garlic sauce (i’m going to make some of this myself and post the recipe soon!).
i will definitely be making this grilled lemon chicken again – hopefully kabobs next time on the grill. even though i just had some this weekend, i can’t wait to have it again!!! a good sign that this recipe is a keeper!
the chicken needs to marinate for at least 8 hours, we marinated it overnight. it’s just lemon juice and zest, chilantro, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. easy peasy.
we then grilled the chicken on a cast iron grill pan, which was delicious. but i think the extra smoky flavor from the grill will make it even more awesome, so if you have a grill i would definitely suggest grilling it instead.
grill the chicken until it’s fully cooked. look at all of those beautiful grill marks!
