Restraunt Grilled Chicken

Submitted by: ILYAHNA

Introduction

This was inspired by a need to cook the chicken quickly while keeping the flavor and tenderness. The flavors I used are some of my family's favoites, and I thought they would hold up well on a grill.

Ingredients

    4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1 oz Lemon juice (bottled works great!)
    1 Tbsp Dried Rosemary
    1 tsp Garlic Powder
    1 tsp Onion Powder
    2 c. Chicken Stock (low sodium store bought)
    Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Combine chicken stock, lemon juice, rosemary, garlic & onion powder, salt and pepper in a medium pot. Heat to boiling. Remove from heat and cool to room temp. (I transfered this to a large measuring cup and place in freezer for about 10 minutes.)

Trim all fat from chicken breast. Butterfly the chicken (or pound out) the thicker section to even out the cooking time. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag and place in bowl (or dish) to prevent accidental leakage.

Once the stock is cool, pour into to the bag with the chicken, seal bag, and place in frige. Let stand 1 to 8 hours.

Remove chicken from bag (it will turn a little white from the lemon juice). Cook on a heated grill until done. Let rest about 5 minutes before serving.

Tips:

I used a mortar and pestal to grind my seasonings.
This releases the oils and freashens dried herbs and spices.

I also used a counter top grill like the George Foreman, but you can use a stovetop or outdoor version. Grill marks make the chicken look really nice.

Makes 4 pieces of chicken.

  • This chicken was delicious and we had lots of leftovers. - 6/12/10

  • I happened to marinate it overnight (easier for me to do it the night before) and I was amazed at how tender it cooked up! I like the fact that it is basic enough that I can substitute out the rosemary for other spices based on the dish for which I'm using the chicken. Thanks so much for sharing. - 4/2/10
