Broiled Chicken with Oil, Lemon and Garlic Sauce

This recipe is really simple. You'll need to prepare it in advance since the chicken needs to be marinated, and - yes - it definitely makes a difference. My recipe is for two people, but feel free to double, triple, etc the recipe as needed.

You will need the following ingredients:

-2 chicken breasts
-Salt and pepper
-4 cloves crushed garlic
-1/4cup lemon juice
-3Tbsp olive oil
-1 Tbsp chopped parsley

Trim fat from chicken breasts and season with salt and pepper.

It usually takes me 1.5 lemons to get a quarter cup of juice, but I'm not very good at squeezing lemons. Also, I almost always use jarred garlic, no matter how the recipe says it should be cut up.

Mix together garlic, lemon juice, oil and parsley.

Coat chicken with the mixture and marinate at least one hour. If the mixture doesn't cover both sides of the chicken breasts, turn them halfway through marinating.

Broil the chicken breasts on high for 10 minutes, then flip them over and broil 10 minutes on the other side. Baste often! If you remember to baste, the chicken will have a really, really amazing flavour.

And that's it! I made white rice and steamed vegetables to go with and it was really, really delicious.



Boring version of recipe instructions:

Trim fat and season chicken with salt and pepper. Mix together garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and parsley. Coat chicken and marinate at least 1 hour. Broil on high 10 minutes on each side, basting often.
