Number of Servings: 4


    1/2 cup lemon juice
    1/4 cup lime juice
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into bite-size pieces
    Italian seasoning to taste
    seasoned salt to taste


In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, lime juice, and oil. Place chicken pieces in the mixture, and marinate at least 1 hour in the refrigerator (preferably 2 hours).
Preheat the oven broiler. Fit a roasting pan with a lightly greased wire rack. Fill pan with water to just below the level of the rack.
Remove chicken from marinade, arrange on the wire rack, and season with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt. Transfer remaining marinade to a saucepan, and bring to the boil.
Broil chicken 10 minutes in the preheated oven, basting frequently with the boiled marinade. Turn chicken, season again with Italian seasoning and seasoned salt, and continue broiling and basting 10 minutes, or until well browned and juices run clear. Serve with salad or vegetables, such as asparagus spears.

    This made some pretty good/tangy chicken. I let mine marinade about 4 hours just due to my schedule. I added some lemon pepper as well. I had it with broiled asparagus. I think next time I make it, I'll serve over brown rice as well. - 5/7/14

    I love lemony chicken but wondered why this has so many calories? It has to be the oil, and I plan to try this using just 1 T. of the oil. Sounds yummy, though. - 3/21/07
