    Half the marinade is sufficient. This works best with thin chicken breasts so that they cook quickly without drying out too much. WIth large breasts, butterfly them. Very flavorful even after marinating only 4 hours.

    This is our go to recipe for lemon marinated chicken. Always receive compliments and requests for the recipe. Absolutely delicious.

    This grilled up nicely and wasn't reasonably moist. The lemon flavor was strong, almost too strong after marinating for 24 hours. Unfortunately, chicken breasts simply don't grill all that well.

    I've made this twice and it was delicious both times. I marinated the chicken in the refrigerator for 24 hours and I cut the grilled chicken into bite-sized pieces for an appetizer buffet. I also made Ina Garten's satay sauce to go with the chicken. It was a great combination. I will make this again!
