Ingredients

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

Instructions

  • To a large plastic food storage bag, add olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, paprika, and oregano and give a little mix.
  • Give the chicken breasts a small slice with a knife or pierce with a fork, and then generously season with salt and pepper on both sides. Add to plastic bag with marinade. Seal bag and with your hands, mix the chicken and the marinade together well. Place in fridge and let marinate for 20 minutes or up to two days in the fridge (the longer the better!)
  • Pre-heat grill.
  • Remove chicken from bag and cook on a grill (or in a grill pan on medium high heat) for about 5-6 minutes per side. Cook until chicken is cooked through and has an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees.

Notes

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 substitute dried oregano for 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh oregano, minced.
 
Lemon juice concentrate is a fine substitution for fresh.
