Marinated Grilled Chicken

I love this marinate. Makes for a very juicy chicken breast. Make some 'Old Fashion Potato Salad' (5-21-10) and some fresh green beans and you have a perfect summer dinner.




MARINATED GRILLED CHICKEN (serves 4)

Ingredients:
*1/4 cup olive oil
*1/4 cup soy sauce
*4 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
*1 tablespoon liquid smoke flavoring
*1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
*1 teaspoon ground black pepper
*2 garlic cloves, grated
*1 teaspoon onion, grated
*1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
*4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

Directions:
~Mix olive oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, liquid smoke, spicy mustard, garlic, onion, brown sugar, & pepper in a gallon sized Ziplock bag.
~Pound chicken breasts to some what flat.
~Add chicken breasts to ziplock bag and seal.
~Allow chicken to marinate for 2-4 hours in the refrigerator.
~Preheat the grill for high heat. (or use stove top grill)
~Oil grill grate
~Discard marinade sauce, and place chicken on grate.
~Cook 5-8 minutes on each side, until juices run clear.

Variations:
`Substitute fresh squeezed lemon juice for ReaLemon.
`Substitute fresh squeezed lemon juice for fresh squeezed lime juice.
`Substitute fresh lemon juice for fresh squeezed orange juice
`Substitute spicy brown mustard for honey mustard
`Substitute fresh garlic for 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Helpful Hint: When you buy your chicken, place your chicken in freezer bags along with the marinate. Then freeze. It will be ready for you whenever you are in mood for marinated grilled chicken.

This looks soooo good. Can I get the liquid smoke flavor at the grocery store?

Yes you can. It should be by the steak sauce, worcestershire sauce, things like that. At least at Kroger it is.
