Grilled Lemon-Garlic Chicken

We've been grilling a lot lately, and one of my main go-to grilling meats is this lemon-garlic chicken. I've been making it at least since we got our new grill, which was about 8 months ago. It's simple, uses ingredients I always have on hand, and is pretty fast. I like to use boneless, skinless chicken tenders, because they're so darn tender, and they cook quicker too. It's also easier to dole out small portions to the youngins. I usually don't have the foresight to marinate this overnight, but it would be good if I did. I usually just do a few hours. Also, like a lot of recipes on this blog, I'm just guessing at the measurments, since I don't measure when I make this.

Grilled Lemon-Garlic Chicken

8-10 boneless, skinless chicken tenders
1 lemon, juiced
3 tablespoons olive oil
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
sprinkle lemon pepper (I like TJ's LP Grinder)
sea salt, to taste

Combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, lemon pepper, and salt together in a small bowl. Place chicken tenders in a shallow dish, and pour marinade over. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. Grill chicken on an outdoor grill until done.
