Lemon-garlic chicken

Yvonne Duivenvoorden


Ingredients

  • 8 skin-on, bone-in chicken pieces
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice , about 2 lemons
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp dried oregano
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Trim excess fat from skin (this will prevent flare-ups). Make several shallow cuts in chicken to make it easier for marinade to infuse. Place chicken in a dish just large enough to hold it snugly. In a medium bowl, whisk lemon juice with oil, herbs, pepper and salt. Pour over chicken. Turn to coat evenly. Marinate at room temperature for 20 min or refrigerated up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat barbecue to medium-low. Oil grill. Remove chicken from marinade (do not discard marinade). Barbecue with lid closed, 15 min, then baste chicken with remaining marinade. Turn chicken and continue to grill with lid closed, until chicken feels springy when pressed, 15 to 20 more min.
