Using 6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts this recipe will make 6 full servings.
For the marinade
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. fresh lemon zest or 1/4 tsp. dried lemon zest
1 tsp. Greek seasoning
1 tsp. poultry seasoning
1 tsp. dried oregano
black pepper to taste
1) Trim all visible fat and membranes from chicken breasts, I like to make small crosswise slits about 1/2 inch apart down the length of each chicken breast to help the marinade penetrate the meat. Put chicken in single layer in Ziploc bag.
2) Combine marinade ingredients and pour over chicken. Marinate in refrigerator 6-8 hours or all day if desired.
3) Preheat grill to medium-hot and grill chicken 20-25 minutes, or until well browned and firm but not hard to the touch.
This chicken could also be cooked in a stove-top grill pan with ridges or a George Foreman Grill with good results.
