Lemony Grilled Chicken

Love grilled chicken that has been marinated overnight.  The chicken picks up the flavors and brings a moisture like nothing else.

The reviews on this recipe are awesome and sounds like a winner.

This recipe comes from Taste of Home, one of my favorite food websites!


1 cup olive oil
2/3 cup lemon juice
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 medium onions, chopped
8 chicken drumsticks (2 pounds)
8 bone-in chicken thighs (2 pounds)


Whisk the first five ingredients until blended; stir in onions. 

Pour 1-1/2 cups marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. 

Add chicken, seal bag and turn to coat. 

Refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Prepare grill for indirect heat. 

Drain chicken, discarding marinade in bag. 

Place chicken on grill rack, skin side up. 

Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat 15 minutes. 

Turn; grill 15-20 minutes longer or until a thermometer reads 170°-175°, basting occasionally with reserved marinade. 

Yield: 8 servings.
