Lemon & Herb Grilled Chicken

I've had a dried bunch of oregano on top of my canister set waiting for inspiration.  I bought some chicken breasts with no plans in mind so with the addition of a lemon, this is the recipe that I created...






Lemon & Herb Grilled Chicken

2 chicken breasts, pounded slightly to they are an even thickness
1 tsp lemon zest
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

In a large plastic bag that seals, combine all the ingredients including the chicken and let it marinate in the refrigerator for an hour.  After an hour or so, remove the chicken from the bag and shake off the excess juice.  Place on a hot grill, turning one time and cook until the internal temperature reaches 165°.  Grill the remaining lemon half for a couple minutes and spritz the top of the chicken breasts before serving.
