Lemon Dill Grilled Chicken marinated in a brine of fresh lemon juice and dill; then grilled are juicy and delicious.

Lemon Dill Grilled Chicken-Carrie's Experimental Kitchen A few weeks ago I came up with this simple new lemon-dill brine and marinated some center cut pork chops; then grilled it to juicy perfection. They were delicious and incredibly moist, BUT I never took a photo of them for the blog.

I then hosted a small bbq about a week or two after that and again used this lemon-dill brine, but this time I used chicken tenderloins. And to no surprise, they were a HUGE hit, but again…no photo. So I just HAD to make this recipe for  Lemon Dill Grilled Chicken one more time just so that I can photograph it for all of you.

Oh, who am I kidding! It truly was my pleasure and I’d make these again and again if I had to. The flavor is delicately light and goes perfectly with just about anything you would like to serve with it. When I made them with the pork, I served them with steamed carrots and for the bbq, we had a variety of salads to go with it.

This time, I  used them to top my mixed green dinner salad. I recommend allowing the tenderloins to marinate in the brine for no more than 2 hours so that they don’t become to salty since the portion size of the meat is smaller; however, if you are using this brine to marinate larger pieces of chicken or a roast, you can leave it in there for 3 to 4 hours instead.

Serve this Lemon Dill Grilled Chicken as a main meal or you can also skewer them before grilling for a tasty appetizer idea. ~Enjoy!

    This sounds fantastic but I don’t have a grill, any suggestion for baking or stove top?

      Hi Maureen, here are a few options: 1. Cook them on an indoor griddle (like a Cuisinart or George Forman Grill) 2. Cook them on top of the stove on a grill pan 3. Place them on a rack on top of a sheet pan and place them in a 425 degree f oven to cook (cooking time may vary depending on the size and thickness). I hope this helps~Enjoy!
