Lemon Chicken

A delicious lemony marinade delivers a healthy chicken meal with a kick.



  1. Split chicken breasts into 6 halves.
  2. Combine all other ingredients in a blender and blend well to make the marinade.
  3. Place chicken in a shallow dish and cover with marinade, reserving 1/4 cup for later.
  4. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours, turning chicken occasionally.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade and broil in the oven or on a grill, 11-12 minutes on each side, basting frequently with reserved marinade.

I forgot to put in 1/2 cup lemon juice as one of the ingredients. I couldn't see any way to edit it, so added it here!
