Description

An Our Best Bites summer staple! This garlic herb rub is perfect for grilled chicken and other meats, but is also wonderful rubbed on vegetables before hitting the grill.


Ingredients

1  1/2 tablespoons finely minced or pressed garlic
1 large or 2 small lemons, zested and juiced
1/31/2 cup minced fresh herbs, preferably a combo of basil, rosemary, and oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
46 tablespoons (or more) extra virgin olive oil
1  1/2-2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (see note)


Instructions

Combine garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, herbs, salt and pepper.  Add olive oil until mixture comes together like a thick sauce.  If you have a mini food processor, you can blend the mixture until it becomes the consistency of a chunky pesto.  Rub mixture over chicken and/or vegetables and let sit for 20-30 minutes.  When ready to cook, preheat outdoor grill or indoor grill pan.  Cook a few minutes on each side, turning only once, until done (Internal temp should be about 165 degrees).


Notes

Also great on steak, fish, or vegetables!
