Lemon Sage Chicken

Simple, savory, and delicious.  Need I say more?  I'm hoping not, because honestly, I don't know what else to say about it.....  Well, except that I included a lemon sage aioli, which just made the chicken that much better!!

I seem to be short on words lately, and I apologize for that... once we finally get moved and I get settled into a new kitchen and a new routine, I know that will change... so hang in there with me for just a bit longer :)

Lemon Sage Chicken

- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
zest of 1 lemon (about 1/2-1 Tablespoons)
juice of 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 garlic clove, finely minced
1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon dried sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
For the lemon sage aioli -
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 - 1 teaspoon dried sage

Mix together the lemon juice, zest, oil, garlic, honey, sage, salt and pepper until combined.  Rinse the chicken and pat dry.  Place in a resealable bag and pour the mixture over it.  Massage it to coat the chicken, seal the bag, and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients of the aioli until well combined.  Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Oil grill grates.  Remove the chicken from the marinade and place directly over the fire.  Grill 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through (165 degrees F.)  Remove from grill and allow to rest for 4 minutes.  Serve with aioli.  Enjoy!

I'm becoming more of a fan of lemon sauces - especially now that I hear the health benefits.

Lemon, sage. Who can complain about that?

Looks wonderful, especially with those green beans! Do you ever use fresh sage? My sage plant is still doing great, much to my surprise!

Lemon and sage is a fantastic combination for chicken. That looks fantastic, Jenn!

This looks great, especially with the aioli. I should make that as I never use enough of the sage in our garden.
