I love grilled chicken. I love grilling chicken. I must say that I am a pretty good chicken griller....ok, I don't actually think that is a word, but I think you see what I'm getting at. I have perfected the art of grilling...so my goal this summer is to perfect the art of marinating and/or seasoning my grilled chicken. This recipe was my first attempt since this goal was made...and boy was it a winner! Yum! The chicken has this great spice to it due to the pepper...and then there's that subtle garlic flavor that hits you ...mmmmm..... I think I may have to toot my own horn here... TOOT TOOT :)
Seriously though, if you want something simple for the grill on a week night... you have got to try this recipe.
Grilled Garlic Pepper Chicken
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
5 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (if you don't like a lot of spice cut it to 1/4 tsp)
Place the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag. Mix all the other ingredients together and pour over chicken. Seal bag and massage chicken to make sure it gets well coats. Let it marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
Preheat your grill to medium, medium-high. Remove chicken from marinade and place directly on the grill. Discard marinade. Grill 5-8 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink in the middle. Remove from grill and enjoy!
