Grilled Lemon Ginger Chicken Recipe


As the weather starts getting warmer, its nice to heat up the gas grill instead of the kitchen. Grilled Lemon Ginger Chicken is the perfect thing to cook on that gas grill; the finished chicken is moist and juicy, with subtle flavors of fresh ginger, lemon, garlic, and pepper. Pork tenderloin can be substituted for the chicken, or a firm fish such as halibut can be marinated in the mixture for a much shorter period of time 30 minutes to an hour.

The recipe calls for Meyer lemons, which are smaller and thinner-skinned than regular grocery store lemons. In case anyone really cares and wants to be up-to-speed on trivia most grocery store lemons are the Eureka variety, which are actually true lemons, as opposed to Meyer lemons which are considered a hybrid and thought to be a cross between a lemon and a Mandarin orange. Meyer lemon juice is slightly sweeter than regular lemon juice. Of course, if Meyer lemons arent available, its perfectly okay to use regular grocery store (Eureka) lemons in this recipe. However, freshly squeezed lemon juice is an absolute must.

One word of caution: In this world of low-fat, not-fat, reduced fat, etc. many cooks are tempted to leave the oil out of the marinade. This is not good (or necessary), since the oil prevents the food from sticking to the grill and also affects the texture of the finished product. Very little oil, if any, is absorbed into the chicken, fish, or meat most is poured off before grilling.
