Grilled Lemon Chicken
Good tasting marinade for chicken. Quick and easy.
Good tasting marinade for chicken. Quick and easy.
Good, but wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be... Next time I'll marinate it for longer than 20 minutes.
This was the best chicken ever! I wished we had made more and we will definitely be making it again. We only marinated for 30 minutes, it is important to remember that with an acid based marinade (lemon is an acid) going over an hour will make chicken tough!! Google it !
Great flavors - and so easy! I was worried - because dinner plans changed, so the chicken ended up being marinated over 24 hrs (we ate it the next night), but the flavor was great! Everyone enjoyed it! Thank you!
FANTASTIC! I only had time to marinade for 20 minutes and it was still great. I also used some of the marinade on zucchini and grilled it.
Very good, I pounded the chicken down a bit and I left out the red pepper. I put everything into a zip loc bag and let it marinate all day. The dijon definitely overpowered the lemon, but it was tangy and delicious.
This dish was excellent and so easy! I followed the recipe exactly, except I baked instead of grilled, and I also added 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes. I let the chicken marinate for about 2 hours, turning once. I lined my baking tray with foil (lightly greased) and covered and baked chicken for 20-25 minutes at 350. I then removed foil cover and took the "basting mixture" and spooned mixture over the top of the chicken (making sure to have plenty of red bell pepper and garlic pieces on top of the chicken) and returned to oven to bake for approximately 10 more minutes; towards the end I set the oven to broil for just a couple minutes to brown for color and crisp up the tops. This chicken turned out so moist and flavorful. I read many reviews that said they did not have a red bell pepper, and therefore did not include it. I'm sure it tastes delicious both ways, but in my opinion, using the finely chopped red bell pepper adds so much flavor! I couldn't imagine this dish without it (maybe it's b/c I purposefully spooned on a plentiful amount when I put the extra mixture over the chicken). Either way, this was a definite hit in my house and I will be making again! Thanks for sharing!
It had a decent lemon flavor but the dijon mustard was so overpowering. I gave it an extra star because it was so easy but I won't be making this again. thanks anyway!
My whole family loved it!!! Very flavorfull and so easy. Will make again and again!
Very easy to make. The flavor is very good for such little time marinating, I was impressed. I will most definately be making this one again, it can be made on a whim and still taste great.
I've been making this for years except I use rosemary and not the red pepper. I double the marinade and reserve half for a dressing. Cool and cut grilled chicken, add to pasta (I use tri color rotini), sun dried tomatoes, grilled red peppers, and some grated mozarella cheese. Add reserved dressing and toss to coat. One of my family's favorites!
Very good! I took the advice of some of the other reviews and marinaded the chicken all day.
I made this for my husband and I. I adjusted the recipe as I was missing some ingredients. Is used regular mustard at the same quantity and I used added some hot sauce instead of the red peppers. Marinated drumsticks with out skin for about 4 hours and it turned out great on the grill. Will be making this again.
I only made this with 2 chicken breast and scaled down. I used more lemon juice and less mustard, reading other reviews who said the mustard over powerd the taste. I also made the marinade in the morining and let it sit all day in the frige. Came out amazing with great lemon flavor! will b making this again and again!
Been through hundreds of lemon-based chicken marinades over the past few months. This was objectively the tastiest.
Very, very good. My kids loved it. Always looking for another way to grill chicken. Thanks for a good one!
This was very tasty! We baked in the oven @ 385 for about 50 mins., could have been less by flattening the chicken. Will do again
Absolutly devine. Marinated x 1hr. and added some lemon zest to marinade. This chicken is amazing!
This was very good. Glad that my picky 5 yr old enjoyed it n didn't ask for chicken fingers! :)
Hi gang, I was invited to a friends house last night to cook out on the grill with her, we made this chicken (used thighs instead of breasts) and it was amazing. We followed the marinade recipe exactly and it came out moist, tender and very flavorful. Everyone at dinner commented on how good the chicken tasted. This will be my new grilled chicken recipe forever. Grilled chicken usually comes out dry but this was delish!!! Thanks for the recipe.
Though it isn't my favorite, it was really really good. It definitely deserves being repeated. I did make one change, instead of throwing away the marinade, I cooked it, then used it as a sauce. I also found out the chicken tasted good with soy sauce as a dipping sauce instead.
Absolutely awesome lemon chicken!! I didn't have the bell pepper but did add red pepper flake and a pinch of rosemary. It was too cold to grill, so I roasted the chicken in the marinade in the oven, finishing them up under the broiler. Moist, flavorful with just the right amount of lemon. Loved the mustard in the background too. I spooned the pan juices over the chicken as a delicious sauce.
I don't eat meat but i marinated this for my fiancee and he cooked it and LOVED it. Thanks!
This recipe was ridiculously easy to make, and DELICIOUS! I can't wait to make it again. Definitely a new fave of mine!
This was wonderful on bone in chicken breast and chicken leg quarters. I added 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar and 2 Tbsp minced garlic. Pierced the chicken with a fork to allow the marinade to seep in and allowed it to sit in the fridge 2 hours. Dry the chicken thoroughly with paper towels before grilling to prevent flame flare ups.Fabulous on the grill. Sear the chicken on high heat for 3 min per side, then cook over indirect heat with other burners on low for 8 min per side. Came out excellent! Nice roasted chicken on the grill was juicy and lemony. This will be my go to recipe for grilled bone in chicken Thanks for a great recipe that works wonders on budget friendly chicken legs. This one's a keeper!
When you cook out in zero degree weather, it better be good....this was. I have never been able to make something as simple as lemon chicken taste very good. I don't even like the brand of dijon I used and it was still very tasty and oh so easy.
Yum!! I made this following the recipe exactly, even adding the red bell peppers some others skipped. They gave a nice subtle flavor and eye appeal. This is the best, restaurant quality, chicken that I have ever tasted. It was so moist and tasty. The lemon flavor was great without being overpowering, and I wouldn't change a thing. Oh, actually, I did. Our grill is on it's last leg, and I tend to burn everything I grill anyway. Plus, it's below freezing out. So, I just simmered the chicken, with the marinade, in a skillet, for about 7 minutes on each side. (flattened breasts) I will be making this over and over again!!
Thought this was excellent, especially for a short marinate. doubled the sauce!
My husband absolutely loved this! I had legs with skin on and marinated for an hour. Used hot pepper flakes rather than pepper. The only problem we had was flare ups on the grill so I recommend cooking with indirect heat if using skin on chicken. I am making it again tonight but doubled the recipe as there were no leftovers the first time I made it!
This had a lot of potential. Like other reviewers, I omitted the red pepper. I marinated it for about an hour and a half and it was very moist. I used a cast iron grill pan instead of the grill and it turned out kind of soft. If I'd used our gas grill, I'm sure it would have been nicely charred. The flavor was good, although a bit heavy on the mustard. I will try it again, though. This leftovers will be good cut up and tossed in a salad.
Loved the flavor and how easy it was to put together! I marinated in a baggie for about 30 minutes but will do it longer next time. I loved the tangy mustard/lemon flavor. I had to run my daughter to soccer practice so I baked instead of grilling and it turned out great - very tender and juicy. Can't wait to try it grilled next time!
This was very good. I marinated the chicken for longer than 20 minutes and cooked them on my George Foreman Grill. Very juicy and flavorful chicken!
I love this recipe. It is easy, I always have the ingredients on hand, and I NEVER throw away the marinade. Instead, I drain and cook it, then brush it over the chicken as it grills. Wonderful.
This was very bland and i will not make this again. I followed the recip precisely.
Oh my......we loved this.
I didn't have read bell pepper on hand so I omitted that one ingredient. It was still really great chicken and pretty easy to make as well. I will be entering this into the dinner rotations at our house.
The marinade is excellent. Save about half of the marinade to use as a drizzle over the grilled chicken, ie after the chicken is cooked. Of course, do not use the marinade in which the chicken had been placed before grilling. Or make a second batch just for post-grilling flavor.
So yummy. I love lemon grilled chicken during the summer. I served this with some brown rice and even my kids loved it.
Delicious! I have made this recipe for years now, and it comes out well every time. I have never bothered to use the bell peppers nor have I ever grilled it. I let the chicken marinate over night and bake it until golden brown.
Great taste. We make this recipe once a week. It is one of our favorite marinade. We love it. It is like eating at our favorite grille restaurant.
its really good
I used all the ingredients except red pepper, marinated the chicken in them for 30 minutes then poured the marinade in a pan and sauteed the chicken in it for about 8 minutes each side on med-high heat. The pieces were pretty thick so just sautee until slightly browned and obviously not pink in the middle! I sauteed to the point where the chicken had soaked up everything just leaving the oil in the pan and the pieces were delicious! Juicy and flavorful, will definately make again!
The flavor was okay, but needed some depth which just wasn't there.
Excellent...didn't change a thing but marinated it for 2 hours on the counter. Tender and tasty!
This was so easy, and so delicious. I had everything on hand, and marinated the meat for just over half an hour. I then grilled the boneless skinless chicken breasts on the bbque, and they turned out moist, flavourful, and simply wonderful.
Delicious! Grilled chicken turned out moist and very flavorful. Marinated for 2 hours and basted with saved marinade while grilling also. A winner!
This is a great recipe with excellent flavor and super simple to make! I followed the recipe but did add some dried thyme and some crushed red pepper to the marinade to give the chicken some punch. I will make this again for sure!
Completely forgot to reserve marinade for basting AND only marinated for 15 minutes. Turned out FANTASTIC! Served with couscous with feta cheese.
For some reason this was not flavorful enough for us. I used the George Foreman which kept it juicy, but my husband and I both thought it was lacking. Maybe the spices needed to be doubled? Not sure. I won't be making it again.
This recipe is turned out great! Very easy to make!
This is a great recipe! I omitted the diced red pepper and added 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes foe a bit of bite. The chicken was tender and very "lemony" Great!
This was very easy, I was able to make it completely drunk, and use the cook times of 8 minutes a side on the chicken, and it came out PERFECTLY cooked, I served it with instant mashed potatoes, and cheesy broccoli rice, The grill was still going hot so I made three cheese burgers, then I mixed in the leftover mashed potatoes with some leftover pot roast, I managed to get the lefte-overs covered before passing out.
This was really good! I didn't have dijon mustard I used spicy brown and I also used thighs and legs instead of breast. I have it in my recipe box and will make again.
Love it! It was simple and a good flavor
Delicious marinade! Next time I'll make some extra marinade to use for other sides and even as extra sauce for the chicken after grilling. I served this dish with some rice pilaf and the Grilled Garlic Parmesan Zucchini recipe from this site, and all were big hits. I'll definitely be making this again!
This is the first time I am writing a review, because this was outstanding. I took the advice of other reviewers and halved the mustard. I also only had spicy brown mustard (not technically Dijon). I used my garlic press rather than chopping the cloves, and I left out the red pepper as I did not have any. Threw it on the grill, and this was amazing. Good flavor, and just the right amount of tang! I will definitely make this again.
WOW!!!The taste and flavour in this chicken is insane. It is truely out of this world! It reminded me of this chicken i had in a tiny Bistro in paris. This recipe is delicious!
Delicious marinade!!! The measurements were just perfect (great balance of flavors) and the marinade left the chicken tender and juicy!
Pretty good- I like dijon, so the heavy dose did not bother me. Do NOT marinade for longer than 30 minutes or so- it will make chicken tough! Reserve a little to pour over the hot grilled chicken.
I gave this 5 stars because my 3 young children ate it and wanted seconds. Not an easy task in my house. My husband and really enjoyed it also. Thanks for a quick and delish dinner.
This is a terrific recipe. I used the juice of 2 lemons, left out the red bell pepper .Added jalapeno instead. everyone loved it. Super flavorfull and tender. Will make again and again.
I was expecting the chicken to be full of a lemon flavor and it wasn't. Was okay but I wouldn't make it again.
Excellent! I marinated the chicken for about 4 hours. I used a teaspoon or so of lemon-pepper seasoning instead of salt and black pepper. The addition of the Dijon mustard really gave it a nice kick!
Pretty good recipe for a quick marinade. Might make again.
Easy, usually have all ingredients in fridge and chicken came out very moist and tasty. Making it for 2nd time in a week today. Have marinated all day and it still comes out moist. Also turned leftovers into chicken pot pie!!
Nice flavor...just do not marinade too long or the chicken will be tough
This was Soooo good! My husband and I loved it and plan on making again this weekend!
I made this tonight so husband could eat it as a sandwich tomorrow. I'll have to wait to see what he thinks about it.
Sooo Tangy and delicious!
Excellent taste. This dish was done as an oven-baked and was absolutely tasteful and golden brown. Bake for 1.5 hrs at 350degrees.
Absolutely loved the chicken. Moist and delicious. Great flavor!! Will make again.
Wow, really delicious and quite simple. This will be a standard recipe in the future. I marinated for about 40 minutes, and then baked for 40 minutes at about 350 degrees in the marinade and it was perfect.
I marinated the chicken for a few hours before grilling and it was just perfect. The marinade is quite tasty and we found it perfect for the outside barbeque grill. Will make this one again.
This is, hands down, the best grilled chicken I have ever eaten. So moist, juicy and flavorful! I am picky and very seldom do I give five stars -- and usually I have to modify the recipe to suit myself. Not this one though. Try it, you'll like it!
Great marinade with ingredients that you have right in your kitchen. Tasted good. Marinated for several hours while we were at church. Will make again.
This is heavenly! I marinated the chicken all day and prepared it on the grill - it was so moist and absolutely delicious.
I didn't get to have any because my husband and 2 teenage boys ate them all. I did have a taste as I took it off the grill and it was really tangy but the smokiness from the grill balanced it out. I hate changing the recipe but I had no red peppers- next time I will put it in.
great marinade for chicken, this was a huge hit for us at dinner time! Thank you for sharing
Awesome receipe....the chicken comes out super tender.
I gave it a 5 even though my kids thought it was "bitter". My dh and guest said it was good. I served it with salad and made a dressing using the same ingredients but I added honey. I think I will add honey to the marinade next time so everyone is happy.
A good recipe but I would definetely suggest marinating the chicken longer than 20 minutes, to get more of the flavor.
Great! I use variations of this marinade for all sorts of things. This time I baked it and used a green bell pepper (because that is all I had). Was delicious! Served with roasted sweet potatoes. yum. will used the red bell pepper next time as that will certainly be nicer.
My boyfriend and I loved this recipe. I baked the chicken instead of grilling but we found that it was very flavorful. My boyfriend said it's the best chicken recipe he's ever had.
Followed the recipe exactly. Nothing special. Probably would not make it again.
This recipe is "delish" as is! My parents who like nothing, LOVE this. Chicken comes out very tender on the grill or baked in the oven. This tastes a liittle better with all fresh ingredients, but I have used store bought lemon juice and minced garlic and it was still great! Love this one!! Thanks!
This marinade is so simple and the results are spectacular!
This was good! Because I had everything on hand, it was so easy to make. I was surprised that the chicken retained the marinade flavour, despite being marinated for only 1/2 an hour. (I actually put the marinade and chicken in a large ziploc bag and flipped it after 15 minutes). Was awesome served with roasted asparagus and rotini pasta with butter.
We loved this recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe called. There's just two of us so I used 1/2 the amount of chicked but kept the same amount of marinade then baked it in the oven and used the extra "sauce" to top the chicken and brown rice....yummy.
Good busy night meal. I marinaded for 1.5 hours then baked in the oven for about 45 minutes. Right before I took it out, I squeezed 1/2 a lemon over the chicken and broiled it on high for 2 minutes approx.
Delicious marinade. I used lime juice for 1/2 of the lemon juice called for in the recipe and it was great. Also, I seasoned chicken with Tony Chachere's seasoning (all purpose seasoning) before adding marinade and omitted salt. I marinated 45 minutes and it was so good. Definitely a keeper. I grill chicken breasts often and am always looking for new recipes.
This was very good, and had a nice flavour even with only an hour in the marinade. I used chicken thighs because that is what I had on hand, and baked it in the oven at 350 for 40 minutes. I also added a little thyme to the marinade and left out the red peppers! This will go into my rotation of marinades!
Awesome! Made this twice so far. Second time I did what one review said to do and I left it over night, way better! The flavour went right through the chicken, and it wasn't tough, it was still really tender. My husband cooked in on low for 25-30mins on the BBQ with the lid closed. Such an easy, YUMMY marinade.
WONDERFUL RECIPE!!! This was delicious! My husband said it is the best chicken I have ever made and his new favorite marinade! I wanted to take a picture, but we had eaten it all before I had a chance to get my camera out! I also added a dash of lemon pepper seasoning to the mix and I marinated the chicken for about an hour and a half, instead of 20 minutes and the flavor really infused into the chicken. I'm sure I will get lots of requests for this one! Thanks!
I made this tonight and followed the recipe exactly. Marinated about 5 hours and my husband grilled it... to perfection. The trick is to remove it as soon as it's done and then cover it with foil and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, so it's nice and juicy. Great flavor! A keeper!
Delicious very zesty and tangy. I did make a change instead of using the Red Bell Pepper I used Red Pepper Flakes for alittle spice. I marinated for over 2 hours to inhance the flavor.
This was the best chicken marinate ever! I made it for a little grill out and everyone loved it! Didn't change anything in the recipe, made exactly as stated. Will definately do this marinate again!
Soooo good. I have made twice in a week, great flavor and so easy. My kids LOVE it..... addicting!!!
by far my new favorite chicken!!
