Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken Recipe

The Best Freaking Grilled Chicken You'll Ever Taste

Grilled chicken: it's healthy but can also be uberboring. But not when you make it like Marcela Valladolid from the Food Network show The Kitchen. The Mexican-American chef adds just a few herbs like cilantro, parsley, and rosemary to lemon juice and olive oil to make the dish juicy and flavorful.

All you need is a bag to marinate the chicken in for two hours, some patience, and a grill to make this delectable recipe that'll have you eating chicken every night for dinner.

Notes

If you buy the chicken breasts already trimmed in halves, they're pretty thin so there's no need for pounding.
