You didn't think I was going to teach you how to grill a chicken under a brick without providing an amazing recipe, did you? This citrus marinated grilled chicken is my new favorite chicken dish and it's a total must make! With a crispy salty skin and juicy citrus interior, it's seriously scrumptious. The marinade is a mixture of orange, lemon, and lime juices that's seasoned with fresh oregano and rosemary. If you can, I suggest making the marinade a day before grilling. It really allows the flavors to permeate the chicken. You ready for the recipe? Keep reading!
