This is a great recipe for grilled chicken breasts! If you are tired of bland chicken, try this recipe for your next BBQ. This marinade is also perfect for making chicken kebabs.


  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1-1 1/2 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breasts


Combine olive oil, lemon juice and dry ingredients to create marinade.

Up to 24-48 hours prior to cooking, marinate chicken breasts in a covered dish, refrigerated. Be sure each side of the chicken breast is covered in marinade.

Grill chicken for about 8-10 minutes each side, or until thoroughly cooked. Cooking time depends on temperature and the thickness of the chicken breasts.

Not only is this delicious-I used it on chicken and firm thick fish-it's healthy too, good fat, I did cut the amt of OO, and full of antioxidents.
