Lemon Dijon Marinated Chicken

I love marinades because they make everything come out so much more flavorful.
Whether it’s fish, meat, or chicken, the flavor seeps in and tenderizes the flesh so you get a juicy, moist piece of meat.
This marinade is tangy and zesty and gives the chicken a bright, fresh flavor.
It makes for a simple, delicious dinner over a bed of rice with grilled asparagus.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 skinless, boneless  chicken breast halves
  1. In a bowl, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic, red bell pepper, salt, and pepper.
  2. Set aside 1/4 cup of the mixture to use for basting. Place chicken in the bowl, and marinate at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat grill for high heat.
  4. Lightly oil grill grate. Drain and discard marinade from the bowl, and place chicken on the grill.
  5. Cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear, basting occasionally with the reserved marinade.
