You’re never going to mind the “Guess who’s coming to dinner?” question again. Nope, this Lemon Dill Grilled Chicken is quickly going to become your dependable, delicious, and easy “old faithful” in your recipe repertoire—a simple yet hugely flavorful grilled chicken that has been marinated in a zesty lemon, lime, dill, and Dijon mixture.
Citrus Dijon Marinade
2 shallots, cut in half
¾ cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp lemon zest
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup olive oil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
10 sprigs fresh dill, washed and uncut
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 limes, for serving
1. In a large bowl, whisk shallots, lemon juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, olive oil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Pour into a 13- x 9-inch glass baking dish.
2. Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper and pound to even thickness, about ½-inch thick. Add to marinade, scattering dill sprigs on top. Refrigerate 2 to 8 hours, turning once.
3. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Brush and oil the grill grate. Discard marinade and dill; grill chicken breasts 5 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked through. Squeeze some lime juice over the cooked chicken and serve with a wedge of lime.
