This grilled chicken recipe is marinated in a simple lemon-garlic marinade before grilling. The result is a tender, juicy grilled lemon chicken recipe that's perfect for summer. Although this grilled chicken recipe is designed for a George Foreman grill, you can also make this grilled lemon chicken on a regular grill. Be sure to flip the chicken halfway through grilling when using a regular grill. This dish is best served with a fresh garden salad or a side of grilled veggies.
Preparation Tips: Using the George Foreman Grill to Make Chicken
There are a few simple things to keep in mind when grilling chicken with the George Foreman grill. For tender results, use only boneless chicken breasts or thighs. The meat can be cooked as is or pounded with a meat tenderizer for faster cooking.
Chicken must always be cooked until thoroughly done (about 4 to 6 minutes) to make sure you don't get sick. Don't cut into the chicken halfway through cooking on the George Foreman grill — the juices will run out and you'll end up with a dry piece of chicken. To check if fully cooked through, touch the center of the breast with a fork to note firmness. The cooked chicken breast should feel firm, but not hard. Alternatively, you can use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature; it should be at least 165 F.
- 1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh; about 1 lemon)
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt (to taste)
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 4 large chicken breast fillets)
Gather the ingredients.
In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Add the chicken breasts, turning to coat with the marinade. Refrigerate and let marinate chicken for 30 minutes.
Preheat the grill. Cook chicken breasts on the grill 5 to 6 minutes or until cooked through. If using a regular grill, turn chicken breasts halfway through the cooking time.
Transfer to plates and serve immediately. Enjoy!
- Cleanup Tips: Immediately after you are done grilling your chicken, unplug the grill and spritz the grilling surfaces with water. When the grilling surfaces have cooled, wipe the grill plates using mild dish soap on a moist sponge or paper towel. Using a clean paper towel with a spritz of water, wipe the grill clean.
