In the summer, grilling is a great way to keep the inside cool and clean from all the mess of prepping the kitchen. To help you keep your kitchen cleaner and your home cooler, I am sharing an easy and quick Lemon chicken recipe to help you prepare a weekend meal during the week weeknight.
My mother would make these type of grill dishes all the time when I was a kid and I decided to continue the tradition with my family. It's a recipe that the entire family enjoyed young and old. I especially love this dish in the warmer months served with a romaine or spinach salad.
3 Tbspoons fresh rosemary chopped
4 cloves of garlic minced
3 Tablespoons of lemon juice
4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 ½ chicken thighs (boneless, skinless)
1 tsp smoked paprika
Add all the ingredients into a bowl and marinate for 1-2 hours. The more you marinate it, the better the chicken becomes. So, if you need to do it before you go to work, feel free. This recipe can also be a freezer meal. All you need to do is toss all the items above in a freezer baggie and place in the freezer. And, when you take it out to defrost, it will continue to marinate.
Add to a hot cleaned grill.
Cook for 30 minutes turning every 15 minutes.
Slice and serve with a salad.
Here's a printable recipe of the delicious rosemary garlic lemon chicken dish.
Doesn't it look yummy? I like making about 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs so my husband and I would have protein for lunch the next day.
