Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken

About this time every year I get the itch to have grilled food again. I am burnt out on soups. I have had one too many casseroles. It is time to dust off the grill and fire it up. Even if it is a little bit too cold.
This is one of those "everything but the kitchen sink" kind of marinades. I was looking in my fridge to see what I had and this is what I came up with. It was really good. Much better than I was expecting it to be. My marinades are always kind of lackluster, but this time it was spot on. The amounts are approximations. As always, I threw caution to the wind and just dumped everything in a ziploc bag.

Lemon Herb Grilled Chicken

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1-2 T red wine vinegar
1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil
juice and zest of 1 lemon
3 green onions, roughly chopped (white and green parts)
1 T dried parsley
4 crushed garlic cloves

Put all ingredients in a ziploc bag and let the chicken marinate for at least 6 hours. Before grilling, put salt and pepper on both sides of the chicken.

Bon Appetit!
