Lemon Grilled Chicken Tenderloins


~2 lbs. Chicken Breast Tenderloins

1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Lemon (juice & then slice the lemon in ½ moons)

3 Tablespoons Low Sodium Soy Sauce

2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 cup Light Brown Sugar, lightly packed

1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce

3 Fresh Garlic Cloves, minced

1 teaspoon fresh ground Black Pepper


4 sprigs Fresh Parsley, chopped

Sliced Lemon (from above)


In a large plastic sealable container, stir together oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and pepper.

Use a fork to pierce each piece of chicken multiple times, all over.

Add the chicken to the marinade, arranging it so that all pieces contact the marinade.

Let marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat grill to medium heat.

Place chicken on the grill, with space between each piece. Cook for approximately 5 – 6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the chicken, until the internal temperature reaches 165F.

Discard the marinade.

Remove chicken from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.

Garnish with parsley & lemon slices.
