Dad's Lemon Pepper Chicken

My dad has made Lemon Pepper Chicken for years.
I can't remember a birthday growing up,
that I didn't request for him to make it for dinner!

After I moved away and started to cook more variety,
I asked him for the recipe and only slightly modified it!
Keep reading to see how this tasty chicken is made.

The Goods:
Lemon Juice
Olive Oil
Worcestershire Sauce
Fresh Pepper
Garlic Salt
Fresh Thyme

Squeeze your lemons to get fresh lemon juice.

I recently got a lemon squeezer and don't know how I lived without.
It makes getting fresh lemon, lime or even orange juice so easy! 

It took me three lemons to get 1/2 cup of juice.

Add everything except the chicken to the juice.
And then mix until everything is incorporated.

You can use whatever chicken you'd like.
Boneless, bone in - it really doesn't matter.
I've had it on all, but I prefer boneless breasts.

Add a little bit of marinade to a container with a lid,
add your chicken and then the rest of the marinade.
Secure lid tightly and marinate a few hours or overnight.

Grill your chicken until cooked fully.

Then serve with a yummy side or two and enjoy!!!

And if possible - dine outside with a yummy cocktail!
