Grilled Lemon Chicken

Typically on the weekends we are away from the house......whether visiting family, making a trip to the "big" city or exploring the outdoors. We take time on Sunday night to slow down and prepare for the upcoming week. I usually write out a schedule of meals for the next 5-7 days and then buy groceries at the commissary on the base.  By the time I get home and unload groceries it seems like we always end up grilling whatever happened to sound good while shopping! This is just a simple marinade recipe that I can easily throw together with basic ingredients. You can also cut the chicken tenders into bite sized chunks, marinade for a few hours and then place onto skewers to grill.....especially yummy along side grilled veggies such as onions and green peppers!

Grilled Lemon Chicken 

Zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Onion Onion Seasoning Blend (or onion powder)
2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 package of chicken tenders (or any other grilling meat)

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over chicken in a glass dish or gallon size plastic bag. Let marinade in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes to 2 hours.... Then grill until done!
