Grilled Lemon Chicken

Grilled Lemon Chicken
In Southern California is was HOT this weekend.  I mean H.O.T. hot!  Summer is a coming.  The weather screamed at me to stay out by the pool and turn on the grill.  I threw this together and let it marinate for about 5 hours before cooking.  It was fabulous, light and very "summer tasting".  The whole family really enjoyed and it was nice to not heat up the kitchen. *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

3 servings
2 net carbs per serving

3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
juice of 1 large lemon
zest of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp rubbed sage
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp dried minced garlic
1/2 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp seasoned salt

Put all ingredients into gallon size ziploc along with chicken breasts.  Shake up and refrigerate 2-6 hours, turning every so often.  Preheat grill on medium and cook until juices run clear.


  1. This sounds so tasty. I will have to try this next weekend. Thank you. Yes it was very hot!

    1. I hope you like it! Very nice and light to eat on the patio.

  2. Can this be made any other way than on the grill?

    1. Sure! You could pan fry in a bit of oil. I wouldn't recommend baking in the oven and skinless chicken breasts get too dry in the oven without a coating on them.
