Lemon and Herb Marinated Grilled Chicken

Today I’m sharing with you a super simple marinade for a tangy, flavorful grilled chicken breast. The best part? No oil! Most marinades include at least a teaspoon or two of oil, so I was intrigued when I came across this one. The acidity from the lemon juice helps tenderize the chicken while the herbs and garlic infuse flavor into every bite. This chicken could not be more delicious or simple to throw together! You can have this marinating in your fridge in about 5 minutes.


You can grill this outside, on a grill pan, in a George Foreman, etc. I’m sure it would be delicious baked as well. You can serve this with any side you would like, but I suggest my baby kale and strawberry salad.

Lemon and Herb Marinated Grilled Chicken


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in half (or you can buy thinly sliced chicken)
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp garlic, crushed (2-3 cloves)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

1) In a ziplock bag, combine lemon juice, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Add chicken breasts and tightly seal bag. Turn until well mixed. Allow to marinade for at least 2 hours, preferably 6.

2) Heat a grill, grill pan, or George Foreman to medium-high heat. When the grill is hot, add the chicken breasts. Cook until slightly browned and cooked through (no pink on the inside). Serve with salad or other vegetables of choice.
