Grilled Island Chicken

Yet another way to marinate chicken and grill it. One of the many things I love about warmer weather, my grill. This is a good marinade for chicken that the flavor isn't overpowering. You could serve it with anything, and even cut it up to put on top of a salad. It would be perfect. Enjoy!

Grilled Island Chicken
slightly adapted from My Kitchen Cafe

1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 ½ tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, finely minced
½ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2-4 chicken breasts

Combine all ingredients except chicken in a mixing bowl or large airtight plastic bag. Whisk or shake well until the it is well mixed. Add the chicken breasts to the bowl or plastic bag so that they are covered by the marinade. If using a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap. If using a plastic bag, press out all the excess air and seal the bag tightly. Refrigerate and marinate up to 10 hours. I was only able to marinate for 4 hours. Next time I'm going to do it longer. Although even with only 4 hours of marinating, the chicken had a nice flavor.

Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Grill the chicken for 7-8 minutes per side (depending on how thick the chicken breasts are), until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
