4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds),
lightly pounded to even thickness
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 small lemons, halved
Place chicken in large freezer-weight reclosable plastic bag. In small bowl, combine olive oil, lemon peel and juice, garlic, seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes; reserve 3 tablespoons marinade for basting chicken. Pour remaining marinade over chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Place bag on plate and marinate in refrigerator for 30 to 60 minutes. Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade. Place chicken and lemons cut-sides down on grid over medium-high heat. Grill turning and basting chicken with reserved marinade until internal temperature of chicken is 165˚F. and lemons are hot, about 8 to 10 minutes. To serve, squeeze grilled lemons over chicken.
