Easy Grilled Chicken Recipe 2011-08-12 13:47:00

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup fresh citrus juice (lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, grapefruit juice)
  2. 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, oregano, basil, cilantro, rosemary, mint, tarragon, etc.)
  3. 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  4. 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  5. 2 teaspoons black pepper
  6. 1/3 cup olive oil
  7. 8 chicken breasts (skinless boneless or with skin and bones — whatever kind you prefer)

Directions

  1. Whisk together citrus juice, herbs, garlic, 1/2 tablespoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl and add oil in a slow stream, whisking.
  2. Generously season the chicken breasts, on both sides, with salt and black pepper.
  3. Prepare gas or charcoal grill. When you can hold your hand 5 inches above rack for 3 to 4 seconds, sear chicken breasts (in batches if you have to) over coals or high heat, uncovered, turning once, until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes total, then transfer as cooked to tray. Put all browned chicken breasts on side of grill with no coals underneath or indirect heat and cook, covered with lid, turning occasionally, until just cooked through (the meat, when opened slightly, will be moist but no longer pink), 12 to 15 minutes more.
  4. Transfer breasts to bowl with citrus herb dressing and turn to coat, then transfer to platter and enjoy.

Serves 8-10.

Tried this recipe out tonight for dinner and it tasted great! I used orange juice and herbs from my garden, and halved the recipe since I only needed four servings. It grilled perfectly on a small propane grill, just turn the gas down to the lowest setting for the last 12-14 minutes.
