In my head, there’s a whole post written up about how this may not be a very fancy or creative recipe, but I wanted to share it anyway, because this is my absolute favorite, go-to recipe for grilled chicken. But I am still recovering somewhat from this nasty combination of a cold, cough, strep and a sinus infection, so the whole complicated post isn’t going to be written. (You might have also noticed that I didn’t post a Photography Friday post, for similar reasons.) Instead, I am going to say very simply that this recipe is delicious. It’s super easy to make. It’s totally versatile. I cut this chicken up into little cubes and make a salad, or make a sandwich with the chicken and some creamy basil dip and some good bread. You can do it on the barbecue grill, broiler or indoor grill.
Anyway, summer is going, and I wanted to share this delicious chicken with you. Assuming I am up to it, I am going to post some more summer recipes- gotta hang on to summer, right?
Herb Marinated Grilled Chicken
1-2 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
Place chicken in a small bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and set aside to marinate. The longer you marinate the chicken, the better the flavor will be.
Grill Chicken on a hot grill or broiler until just starting to brown and cooked through. Be careful not to over-cook it, or the chicken will be dry.
Thanks for reading! Stay tuned- I have a fabulous cookie recipe coming up! -Miriam
