Everyone loves simplicity and most people love chicken, this Grilled Chicken Marinade is a quick and simple meal that I’m sure many of you will love. There are lots of flavors in food that a person tends to prefer, I always gravitate towards anything lemon. Lemon is that bold powerful flavor that has many health benefits and is a fruit that should be loved daily. On chicken, lemon adds that pop of flavor that poultry can sometimes lack if not seasoned properly. People also prefer certain seasonings over others, I love oregano in the right dose. By adding oregano to lemon this chicken dish has a beautiful balance of tang and spice.
This simple marinade grilled chicken is great with multiple sides, whether serving with rice, potato salad, other grilled meats or over a nice salad with some beautiful feta cheese. Make sure to marinade the chicken a minimum of three hours and a maximum of eight for optimal flavor.
