Lemon & Herb Grilled Chicken

This post covers three different meals but it is ultimately about the chicken.  The first meal was a couple of CAB prime rib eyes that I grilled and sided with a baked potato for my BD supper after we got home from our RV Rally on Friday - since I was born on this day I know good things can happen on Friday the 13th. J

As you might expect, this meal was very good.

The next night, I grilled 4lbs of bone-in chicken breasts using the recipe for Lemon & Herb Chicken from Lake Geneva Country Meats which I followed as shown below but doubled for the amount of chicken thighs that I had.  

2 lbs Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
4 Lemon ( juiced)
.5 cup Olive Oil
2 clove Garlic ( minced)
2 Tbsp Rosemary
2 Tbsp Sage
1 Tbsp Parsley
1 Tbsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper

1. Combine the lemon juice, herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil in a small bowl and whisk together. Pour the marinade into a large sealable plastic bag and add the chicken thighs. Work the thighs into the marinade until all surfaces of the chicken are covered. Click here to read why we don’t marinate longer!
2. Heat your grill to medium heat and oil the grates so the chicken doesn’t stick to them.
3. Place the chicken thighs onto the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes per side, flipping once until the meat reaches an internal temperature 165°F (Larry cooked to 175F for thighs).
4. Remove from the grill and rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Everyone thought the chicken was very good and wants to have it again – next time I will use boneless, skinless, chicken breasts which I will brine for a few hours prior to the marinade (without salt).  I got no pics of this meal but we had leftovers.

We also had a leftover rib eye from the Friday meal so I grilled it, reheated the chicken thighs, and Bev made a salad to get this meal.

The chicken was even very good as leftovers and of course the prime rib eye went down very easily again.  We definitely recommend the chicken dish - easy and delicious.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  3. wow I just love those grill marks on that chicken it looks like a ribeye! WOW

  4. Larry, That ribeye steak looks damn good! As for the chicken, my favorite chicken dish (other than top notch fried chicken) is Greek Lemon Chicken, so your recipe is right in my wheelhouse! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
