Herb-Marinated Chicken

Light, delicious, herb-marinated chicken breast to throw on the grill for an easy summer meal. These are so flavorful and good for you! Marinate for 30 minutes and grill the chicken for about 10 minutes. Fast and easy! I made mine on a George Foreman grill and they made my house smell almost as good as they tasted!


***Helpful hint:***To get your chicken tender and to ensure an even cooking time, place your chicken in a ziplock bag or between two sheets of wax paper and pound it with a mallet (or anything heavy, I use my can opener). This especially helps with the cooking time on the George Foreman grill.
