Grilled Island Chicken

Don't you just love the picture?  lol Doesn't that piece of chicken look like a boot?  Or maybe it's actually a J for Jenn, I can't be sure.  It sort of brings something to the plate, doesn't it... like don't mess with me, or I'll give you a swift kick.  Then again, maybe not.  All I know is this recipe is a hit on a couple of the other blogs I follow.  I found it last year and we fell in love with it.  It originated from Annie's Eats and if you have never stopped by her blog, you should check it out.  She has great photos and fantastic recipes...including this one.  What wonderful flavors.  Very fresh tasting.  And don't forget how simple it is.  You do need to leave yourself at least 8 hours for marinating though.  No worries, 5 minutes of prep time before you head off to work and it's ready to cook when you get home.  See, Simple!

The original recipe calls for baking...but come on.. the word island immediately brings to mind beaches and summer and beers and GRILLING!

Grilled Island Chicken
Adapted from Annie's Eats
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 Tablespoons soy sauce
3 garlic cloves, minced
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Place chicken in a resealable bag.  In a small bowl mix all other ingredients together.  Pour over chicken and seal bag.  Let marinate in refrigerator for up to 10 hours.

When you're ready to cook chicken, preheat your grill to 400 degrees.  Remove chicken and place on grill; discard marinade.  Grill chicken 6-8 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.  Enjoy!

Gosh, I've gotten two recipes I want to make already this morning (including this one). We're definitely due to have some chicken.
