Grilled Chicken

It’s Memorial Day weekend. You should grill something. Don’t have a patio? Don’t have a grill? My recommendation: go buy a table top, charcoal grill and go to a park. It will be worth the (small) expense, many times over.

Marinated, Grilled Chicken

I based my marinade on the culinary expertise of Bonavita. However, since I’m not cooking for a crowd, I sized it down a few times over to make the perfect amount for 2-4 servings of chicken.

You’ll need:

  • 2-4 chicken thighs
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1/8 cup Chardonnay
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. each black pepper and thyme
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

1. Put all ingredients, except chicken, in a bowl. Whisk to combine.

2. Add chicken.

3. Allow chicken to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

4. Heat the grill! Medium heat will do (if the grill is too hot, it will scorch the outside of the chicken, and the inside will remain raw.) Cook chicken until it is no longer pink in the middle, roughly 4-5 minutes on each side.

Happy grilling!

I wanna know: How are you reveling in your holiday weekend?
