Dad’s Lemony Grilled Chicken
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 30 min.
We only used legs. I do think the onion is a bit much, especially if you don't really like onions. And fresh squeezed lemons works better than bottled lemon juice if you really want the lemon flavor. I still wish it was a bit more lemony though.
Good recipe. Just two of us so I used two chicken thighs. Cut the marinade in half and marinated in fridge 24 hours. I crushed the garlic instead of mincing I think that brings out more flavor if you are a garlic fan like we are.
Very good! Next time I'll try with breasts instead, as my family prefers them.
I followed the recipe exactly and it was only okay. I marinated the chicken in the refrigerator for two days, so I expected it to be very flavorful but it wasn't nearly salty or lemony enough.
We used a cut up chicken for this recipe. I only added one onion (Vidalia) because it looked like enough and I think it was. Prepare one day and grill the next. This would be an easy recipe for a workday meal. This is a nice summer recipe.
I really enjoyed this. I added 1Tab. of Italian seasoning and marinated it overnight. It added a little extra omph! Will use this many times.
We had this for dinner tonight on the grill. Delish. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and would definitely make again. I threw everything into a plastic bag and marinated over night. No basting required and still moist and delish. We did use the direct method and only for 7 minutes on each side.
This recipe is better than the version we have used forever. Thanks! 95% of our grilling, we do a ton of it, is over indirect coals. Place the thighs and legs away from the coals, skin side up, cover with lid with the vents wide open. In 50-55 min you have great juicy chicken. Do not turn, peek or baste during the cooking time. Marinating overnight is a plus. With this amount of oil your chicken skin will look and taste almost like fried chicken. Reheat marinade and baste at the table for a wonderful finishing touch.
I use this same recipe for Cornish hens, it's excellent.
Very tasty! I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and marinated overnight.
