Fresh lemon juice
6 medium, finely chopped
3 medium clove(s), crushed through a press
½ tsp, coarsely ground
Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)
3¼ breast(s), quartered
- Combine the lemon juice, scallions, garlic, coriander, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Measure 1⁄2 cup of the juice mixture into another small bowl.
- Pour the remaining juice mixture into a zip-close plastic bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, at least 4 hours or overnight.
- Spray the grill or broiler rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill or preheat the broiler.
- Transfer the chicken pieces from the bag to the grill or broiler rack; discard the marinade in the bag. Grill or broil the chicken 5 inches from the heat, turning and basting occasionally with the 1⁄2 cup reserved marinade, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in a thigh registers 180°F, 20–25 minutes. Cut each chicken quarter into 2 pieces. Yields 1 piece of chicken per serving.
