“A super easy, tasty way to add a bit of life to a boring chicken breast! Preparation time includes minimum marinade time. You can substitute the garlic powder and bottled lemon juice for fresh ingredients if you like but I use them for quickness. Also you can alter the amount of lemon pepper, lemon juice and garlic powder to taste. I sometimes add some chopped chives or mixed herbs if i fancy a change. Just increase the amounts accordingly to marinade more chicken breasts. This chicken is best cooked on a BBQ but as i live in England 9 times out of 10 it ends up on my George Foreman grill!!! Fanastic and served hot or cold.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In the sandwich bag combine the garlic powder, lemon pepper, salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Give it a good shake.
  2. Score the chickn breasts lightly on both sides (this helps cut down the marinade time).
  3. Place chicken breasts into the sandwich bag and close. Give them a good massage and put in the fridge to marinate. If possible leave them over night but 20 - 30 mins is long enough for a great flavour.
  4. Remove chicken from the marinade and cook in your favourite way until the juices of the chicken run clear (on my George Foreman it takes around 15 - 20 mins depending on the thickness of the chicken breast).
  5. Et voila! I serve with buttered new potatoes and a crisp salad for a tasty, healthy meal. This chicken is also AMAZING on a BBQ!
