Chicken breasts, marinated in lemon and black pepper, and grilled to perfection -- it's a summertime classic.


Citrus Grilled Chicken Breasts
Recipe from 
       skinless chicken breasts
       lemons, halved
    1/3  cup  olive oil
    1/4  cup  chopped fresh oregano
    1/2  teaspoon  salt
    1 1/2  teaspoons  black pepper
       garlic cloves, smashed
For Balsamic Dressing:
        Salt and pepper to taste
       garlic clove, minced
     tablespoons  finely chopped oregano
    1/2  cup  + 1 tablespoon canola oil
    1/4  cup  + 2 tablespoons olive oil
     tablespoons  Dijon mustard
    1/2  cup  + 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Place the chicken breasts in a large shallow pan. Squeeze the juice from the lemon halves into a separate bowl, then whisk in the oil, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Pour this marinade over the chicken. Place the lemon halves in between the chicken breasts, cover the pan tightly. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight.
Grill the chicken, occasionally turning and brushing with any remaining marinade, until the juice runs clear or the inner temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Remove from the grill and place on a plate of greens and garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of oregano.
For the Balsamic Dressing: whisk ingredients together in small bowl and drizzle over the greens and chicken. Serve immediately.
