As I sit here typing this post, I have one eye on my all time favorite movie – Shaun of the Dead. I have seen this movie over
100 200 times and it still makes me laugh hysterically. I believe Edger Wright and Simon Pegg (and Nick Frost, but he didn’t write the movie) are moving making geniuses!
There is no true reason for bringing this up, other than the fact that it takes a lot to make me tire of something I truly love. Hence, we eat a TON of chicken and fish at our house. I also never tire of simple and easy dishes. 🙂
I love parsley, it’s an herb that holds up very well to … well…everything. It doesn’t bruise easily when you chop it. It doesn’t turn a nasty shade of black when it heats up. And it holds its delicious flavor even in acids.
This chicken is flavorful and simple…my two favorite things!
Grilled Garlic and Parsley Chicken
Recipe created by Jenn’s Food Journey Printable Recipe Ingredients:4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts10 garlic cloves1/2 cup fresh parsley1/4 cup olive oil2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Place the garlic in a food processor and pulse 4 or 5 times. Add the parsley and pulse another 4-5 times. Add the oil and lemon juice and pulse everything is roughly chopped and combined well. Place the chicken in a resealable bag or shallow dish. Rub/pour the marinade over both sides of the chicken and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour, though I would suggest at least 4 hours if you have it.
Preheat grill to 375-400 degrees. Place the chicken directly on the grates and grill for 6-9 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked all the way through. Remove from grill and allow to sit for 3 minutes. Enjoy!
