Chicken In Lemonade Marinade

***1/2 Tasty broiled chicken breast with a wonderful lemon marinade.
Servings 2


  • 1/3 C canola oil
  • 1/4 C freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 tsp hot sauce (I used Cholula)
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 boneless , skinless chicken breasts


  1. Whisk together the first eight ingredients.  Set aside 1/4 cup for basting.  Place chicken in a zip-lock freezer bag and pour the remaining lemon mixture over it.  Seal the bag and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning chicken occasionally.
  2. Turn oven to Broil.  Remove chicken from the bag, discarding marinade.  Place the chicken onto a lightly greased rack over a broiler pan. Broil about 7 inches from heat 8-10 minutes on each side or until tender, basting frequently with the reserved 1/4 cup of lemon juice mixture.

Recipe Notes

Tips and Stuff:  Since my broiler is under the oven, my chicken was a little less than 7 inches from the fire and 9 minutes on each side was perfect.  Don't forget to baste.  Take the chicken out a minute before you think it's done.  Put it under tented aluminum and let sit for 3-4 minutes and it will finish cooking and be very moist.  You can easily double the recipe for up to 6 chicken breasts.
