  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by marinating the chicken breasts in a mixture of lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Let them sit for at least 30 minutes to absorb the flavors.
  2. Preheat your grill or skillet over medium-high heat and lightly oil the grates or skillet with olive oil to prevent sticking.
  3. Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C) and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Once done, remove the chicken from the grill or skillet, and sprinkle the lemon zest over the top for an extra burst of flavor.
  5. Garnish with fresh parsley and serve hot. This Zesty Lemon Chicken Dish pairs perfectly with a side of steamed vegetables or a fresh salad.
