In the midst of all the craziness one of the last things to get done was a really good recipe for our grilled chicken. We were getting desperate. After tasting another Weber seasoning (Garlic and herb) we have used and loved in the Reel household, my mom picked up Weber’s Zesty Lemon. At that point, with three very busy days to go before the party and no chicken recipe picked out, she gave the prepared seasoning a go, and was duly impressed. The incredibly easy chicken “recipe” we ended up with was so delicious you’d think it involved actual work!
Amazingly, this simple rub gave the chicken a lot of flavor, even in just four short hours. The chicken didn’t really scream lemon; instead, it had a very well rounded, summery, and fresh taste with subtle lemon flavor. It would also be delicious on salmon.
Doesn’t Get Easier Grilled Chicken
Boneless skinless chicken breasts

At least four hours before grilling very lightly score your chicken, only on the fattest area of the breast. Sprinkle with lemon seasoning. Refrigerate four hours. Grill, being careful not to overcook. Allow the chicken to rest for five minutes before slicing.
Serve with salad, if desired, and citrus-basil vinaigrette.
