Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken

One of my favorite things about the summer is having BBQ’s.   Even though my hubby is king of the grill, I am pretty good at it myself! I love lemon chicken so I was excited to put this on the grill.  I already had a back up plan for my picky five year old to make him for dinner.  I wasn’t sure if he would like the lemon flavor or not.  Of course my nine year old loved it and asked for seconds.   As soon as I brought it in from the grill, my five year old asked me if he could try I bite.  I was shocked so I gave him a piece.  Well he didn’t gag or anything and actually LOVED it!  I was so excited!!  He ate the entire piece of chicken.  If my five year old loved it I know that your family will too!


The chicken marinated overnight in an amazing lemon marinade.  It was a great balance and wasn’t too lemony.  The chicken grilled up perfectly and was so tender and juicy with just the right amount of lemon.  I cut up some lemon slices and grilled them on the grill and they made the perfect garnish to this amazing dish!
