Serves 4
  • 3 whole lemons
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 Tbsp minced fresh oregano
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 pieces chicken, such as breasts, thighs or legs

In a bowl, grate 2 teaspoons zest from 1 lemon. Cut zested lemon and 1 more lemon in half and juice. Add garlic, oregano and oil. Liberally season with salt and pepper. Place marinade in a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken pieces, seal and squeeze bag to remove any air. Coat all pieces of chicken in marinade.

Prepare a grill over medium-high heat. Clean and oil the grill grate. Place chicken on grill, discard marinade, and cook until an internal temperature reads 165°, about 30-35 minutes. Let chicken rest, 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut remaining lemon into wedges and place on grill and cook until each side has char marks. Serve with chicken.
