Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken Recipe

When it comes to summertime grilling...nothing speaks to me more than some fabulous grilled chicken! This recipe was given to me many years ago by one of my great uncle's and it quickly became a family favorite and was always requested at our family picnics during the summertime months.

Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken Recipe

1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1 tsp. salt
4-5 chicken quarters

In a small bowl combine lemon juice, onion, garlic, pepper, brown sugar, lemon peel and salt until well blended. Remove 3 tablespoons of marinade and set aside. Pour the marinade into the Tupperware Season-Serve Container and add your chicken, seal the container. Put the reserved marinade in a small container. Refrigerate for 6-8 hours. Remove chicken from the container and discard marinade. Place chicken on a preheated hot grill and cook for 20-30 minutes. Flip chicken over and use the reserved marinade to baste chicken. Grill for an additional 15-20 minutes or until done.
