Tin Foil Citrus Chicken

Grilling season is my favorite! Although the weather has been hit or miss here (Colorado), we've caught a couple really great nights that make for fun dinners. Secretly, grilling is my favorite because my husband does all the work while I work on side dishes. :)

This is a lightly flavored chicken that is perfect for a warm day. And it's named citrus chicken, but that doesn't mean it tastes all lemon and lime-y. It's a subtle taste that will leave you satisfied and it would be great cut up for a salad too.

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 tablespoon Lawry's chile & garlic seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime


  1. Fire up the girl! Booya!
  2. Layout some tinfoil on the counter top (you want it big enough so it can be generously wrapped around the chicken after seasoning).
  3. Place the chicken on top of the tinfoil. 
  4. Drizzle oil over chicken and toss chicken until it's completely covered in oil.  
  5. Sprinkle the Lawry's and lemon pepper seasoning over the chicken.
  6. Cut the lemon and lime in half. Squeeze one half over the chicken in the tinfoil. Slice the other half of the fruit and place on top of the chicken.
  7. Close up the tinfoil and place on the grill. Cook until chicken is cooked all the way through.
