Grilled Moroccan Spice Chicken Recipe
Liven up grilled chicken with a Moroccan-inspired marinade of lemon juice, olive oil, honey, and aromatic spices. Massaging the marinade into the chicken for just five minutes gives you maximum flavor without needing marinating time in the refrigerator.
- 1/3 Cup lemon juice
- 1/3 olive oil
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 2 Tablespoons minced onions
- 1 Teaspoon cumin
- 1 Teaspoon turmeric
- 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 Cup cinnamon
- 1/2 Teaspoon crushed red pepper
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 Pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Mix all ingredients except chicken in medium bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons marinade for brushing.
Place chicken in large resealable bag. Add remaining marinade and turn to coat well. Massage chicken and marinade for 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.
Grill chicken over medium heat for 6 to 7 minutes per side or until cooked through, brushing with reserved marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.
