This healthy grilled honey lemon chicken is healthy and incredibly juicy and tender after being marinated in a simple honey and lemon sauce.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded to even thickness
1/3 cup oil
juice of 2 lemons (about 6 tablespoons)
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Whisk together oil, honey, garlic powder, salt, Italian seasoning, and black pepper.
Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Add half of the sauce mixture and seal the bag. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight. Reserve remaining sauce.
Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove chicken from bag and discard the bag and marinade. Place chicken on grill and cook 5-7 minutes on each side until cooked through.
While chicken is cooking (or immediately afterwards) add reserved sauce to small sauce pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 5-6 minutes.
Drizzle sauce over grilled chicken and serve immediately. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh herbs if desired (I used fresh basil).
