Author Notes: Perfect for the summer grilling season!mtlabor

Serves 2-4

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • juice from 1 lemon
  1. Combine all ingredients, except for chicken, in a large plastic freezer bag. Make sure they are mixed well and add in chicken thighs. Remove bag of air and seal tightly. Roll the bag up and place into a medium bowl (to prevent any leaking out onto your fridge shelf) in the fridge. Let marinate for a few hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat a grill to medium high. Soak a wad of paper towels with vegetable oil and carefully rub on grill rack to prevent chicken from sticking.
  3. Grill chicken for about 5-7 minutes per side (or if using breasts, a little less than that), or until cooked through.
  4. We served this with a quick ranch pasta salad!

I subbed fresh Orange Zest and Orange Juice instead of the Lemon. It's marinating now but I am sure it will be delish!
