A Betty Crocker Diabetes Cookbook shares a recipe! Dress up grilled chicken breasts with a lemon and herb marinade plus a bonus of fennel and onion.
Updated Jan 6, 2009

Ingredients

  • 6 bone-in chicken breast halves (about 3 lb)
  • 1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh or 2 teaspoons dried oregano leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 medium fennel bulbs, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch slices

Steps

  • 1
    Place chicken in shallow glass or plastic dish. In small bowl, mix oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, oregano and salt; pour over chicken. Cover; let stand 15 minutes.
  • 2
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove chicken from marinade; reserve marinade. Brush fennel and onion with marinade.
  • 3
    Place chicken (skin sides down), fennel and onion on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning once and brushing frequently with marinade, until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (170°F). Discard any remaining marinade.
