Parsley Chicken

I made this with the garlic sweet potatoes for dinner Thursday night.  I am always on the lookout for new chicken recipes, especially healthy ones and this one seemed to be a winner!  I found this on Good Things Catered website, as I do a lot of my recipes!  She is fab!

3 pounds trimmed boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/2 c. fresh flat leaf parsley, minced
1 large lemon, washed thoroughly
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1 tsp za’atar (I omitted…couldn’t find at my store  : ( )
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

-Pound chicken breasts down to uniform thickness throughout (about 1-inch thickness)and place in large bowl.
-Halve lemon and juice well.
-Add lemon juice to bowl and toss in rind.
-Add remaining ingredients and use tongs to coat pieces evenly.
-Cover with plastic wrap and place into fridge for 30 mins – 1 hour.
-Preheat grill on high.
-Remove chicken from fridge and let rest until grill is up to temp.
-With tongs, move breasts around to coat evenly.
-Turn grill down to medium low heat.
-Place chicken breast-side-down onto grill.
-Do not move meat as much as possible until finished cooking on one side, about 10 minutes depending on size of chicken.
-Flip breasts over and continue cooking until almost cooked through, about 5-10 more minutes.
-Remove from grill.
-Let meat rest, covered, on cutting board for 3-5 mins before slicing and serving.

Pig Rating:  He thought this one was okay.  Not as much flavor as he is used to.

Mrs. Pig Rating:  This was a quick, easy recipe.  If you like parsley, you will love this.  It wasn’t my favorite, but it’s a good healthy recipe for a quick dinner.
