“This marinade produces a very moist chicken breast with lots of flavor, no need to marinate for more than 2-3 hours, or the acid in the lemon will start to "cook" the chicken. Adjust the hot sauce to taste. This recipe can be doubled if desired.”

  1. Process the first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth, scraping down sides of the bowl frequently; remove about 1/4 cup of the mixture to a small bowl, cover and refrigerate.

  3. Place in the refrigerator for about 2-3 hours, turning the bag occasionally.
  4. Remove the chicken and discard the marinade.
  5. Season the chicken with seasoned salt and more black pepper.
  6. Grill or broil the chicke breasts until completely cooked, basting frequently with the reserved 1/4 cup lemon marinade.
