  • 4 chicken breasts halves 2 lbs chicken total
  • 6 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons of fresh minced parsley
  • 5-6 large garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to season


  • Add lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, garlic, paprika, and oregano to a large plastic food storage bag.
  • Pierce chicken with fork several times and season with salt and pepper. Add to bag and coat with dressing, marinate 20 minutes or up to two days in the fridge (the longer the better!)
  • Pre-heat grill.
  • Remove chicken from bag. Grill for about 5-6 minutes per side. Or inside, cook in a grill pan over medium-high heat, 5 to 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and internal temperature reads at least 165 degrees.


Marinate for at the very least 20 minutes but the longer the better! Basically the longer you let it marinate, the more flavorful it will be! You can marinate it up to 2 days.
For the 6 tablespoons of fresh parsley, you can sub 6 teaspoons of dried parsley.
 You can sub dried oregano for 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh oregano, minced.
