Grilled Island Chicken

Grilled Island Chicken
image and recipe from My Kitchen Cafe

1/3 cup vegetable oil
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1-2 lemons)
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

1. Combine all marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl or large airtight plastic bag. Whisk or shake well until the marinade is well mixed.
2. Add the chicken breasts to the bowl or plastic bag so that they are covered by the marinade. Refrigerate and marinate up to 10 hours (I would suggest marinading for at least 3 hours at the minimum).
3. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium heat. Grill the chicken for 6-7 minutes per side (depending on how thick the chicken breasts are), until the chicken is no longer pink in the center (if you have a meat thermometer, the chicken should register 165 degrees). Tent with foil and let the chicken rest for about five minutes before serving.

This chicken had delicious flavor and was so juicy!
