Yield: 2 servings

Fat per serving: 15.4g


  • (2) 8 ounce chicken breast fillets
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt

Cooking Directions

  1. Clean and trim fat off chicken breasts
  2. Chop garlic finely and slice lemon in half
  3. Into a plastic bag to be placed in refrigerator, add chicken, olive oil, chopped garlic, pepper, salt, and squeeze lemon halves into bag without seeds
  4. Let marinade overnight or at least for a 3-4 hours
  5. Fire up charcoal grill with 2 chimney starters filled with lump hardwood charcoal and ignited by a paper towel dressed with olive oil underneath (do not use lighter fluid). Add a few cherry wood chips into the chimney starter for an additional lite, smokey flavor
  6. When coals are grey, dump into charcoal pit and place grates back on grill and use olive oil dressed paper towel to oil the grates gently (use a long cooking thong as to not burn yourself)
  7. Place chicken over coals at medium-to-high heat and let sear for 3-4 minutes on each side
  8. Then move chicken to a medium heat on the grill and close grill cover for 15 minutes (chicken will sweat nicely and become moist)
  9. After 15 minutes, check chicken and if moist and soft in the middle, remove and serve (make sure to not let the chicken sit too long over high heat because it will become dry)
  10. Let chicken cool for several minutes and then serve

Let it Rip!
