Recipe Ingredients for Mardi Gras Grilled Chicken

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 lb chicken breast

Recipe Directions for Mardi Gras Grilled Chicken

  1. Combine dry spices in small bowl.

  2. In a shallow glass dish large enough to hold chicken in a single layer, place lemon juice and oil.

  3. Add half of spice mix; stir to combine. Add chicken breasts, turning to coat both sides.

  4. Marinate 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature or 2 to 3 hours in the refrigerator, covered.

  5. Drain chicken from marinade and sprinkle both sides with remaining seasoning mix.

  6. Place breasts on hot grill with the thin ends away from the flames. Cook, turning once, until just cooked through, 3 to 8 minutes per side, depending on heat intensity and thickness of meat.

  7. Note: You could also bake the chicken, 400 degrees 9 minutes per side. I baste the chicken with the leftover lemon juice/oil/spice marinade to keep it from drying out.
