Lemony Grilled Chicken Without the Sauce

I tried a recipe last week entitled Broccoli and Butternut Squash Fettuccini and Lemon Chicken. It was a little gormet for the kids and Stephen. I liked the idea but do not think I will ever make it again unless I make a few changes. The lemon chicken however was a hit.

1-2 tbsp Olive oil
Zest of half a lemon
Juice of a whole lemon, or to taste
3 cloves garlic, chopped
4 chicken breast or thighs
Salt and pepper

Season the chicken with the salt and pepper. Slice chicken into bit sized strips.

Heat oil in the pan. Add the garlic, chicken and lemon zest. Cook until no longer pink in the center. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
