As I’ve mentioned in previous posts (and my about page), I’m a big, big fan of quick and easy meals. The easier the better. Except it’s extremely easy to bore me.

There are people who have their favorite food that they eat every single week. Every Monday is meatloaf. Tuesday is tacos. Waffle Wednesday. Stir fry Saturday.

I am not one of these people.

I almost never cook the same meal twice. It drives my husband crazy, because he’ll love something I’ve cooked and then I never make it again.

But then I start to run out of ideas. What do you cook if you can’t cook the same thing twice? Well, you mix it up by creating delicious marinades to spruce up the same old ingredients, of course! Marinades just add another dimension to simple whole-food ingredients that nothing else can.

Marinades are the difference between grilled chicken (wah wah) and bright, juicy, heavenly lemon basil grilled chicken (brb drooling).

Are you a fan of marinades?

If not, try this recipe and then come back here and tell me how you’re not a fan of marinades. Go ahead, I’ll wait…

How to make AIP Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken

This AIP Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken is seriously the simplest, yet most delicious chicken I’ve ever eaten. Just marinate the chicken, fire up the grill and dinner is served!

For the AIP Lemon Basil Marinade, you’ll need the following:

Plus, you’ll want about two pounds of chicken. Thighs or breasts work, but thighs are my favorite for optimal juiciness.

Add all your marinade ingredients to a small mason jar and give it a good shake, until thoroughly mixed. Pour over chicken (either in a glass dish or plastic zip-top bag) and marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to 24 hours.

Preheat your grill to medium (350-400°F).

Remove the chicken from the lemon basil marinade and discard any leftover marinade. Transfer chicken to hot grill and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove the chicken onto a clean plate and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

This AIP Lemon Basil Grilled Chicken goes great with grilled asparagus, zucchini or a side salad. You could even make extra marinade to marinate some veggies before grilling them alongside the chicken (but only marinate the veggies for about 30 minutes, max)!
