    1 Tbsp (15 mL) extra-virgin olive oil

    Place olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and fresh diced herbs in a resealable plastic bag or in an 8 x 8 in (2 L) nonmetallic baking dish. Add chicken, ensuring that the marinade coats the chicken. If using a bag, reseal; if using the baking dish, cover. Store in fridge for at least 1 hour or up to 12 hours.

    When ready to cook, preheat outdoor barbecue.

    Remove chicken from fridge and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove chicken from marinade and place on hot grill. Discard marinade.

    Cook chicken on medium direct heat, flipping often to reduce burning and until internal temperature reaches 165 F (74 C), approximately 6 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.

    Remove from grill and place on clean plate. Let sit covered for 5 minutes. Divide chicken evenly among 4 servings.

    Serves 4.
