lemon chicken with guacamole sauce {recipe}

this is one of my favorite recipes because it's one where Beau and i can collaborate for dinner. Beau handles the grill while i man the kitchen.
 there's something about creating something together as a couple that just makes you feel so much closer.

it's also a recipe that is frequently requested by family members.

it's one of those meals where everyone is silent unless they're making satisfied noises or exclaiming "THIS IS SO GOOD!"

i figured it was my duty to share this delicious recipe with everyone in blog land

juice of 2 lemons
3 tbsp olive oil
2 minced garlic cloves
salt and pepper

combine the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper to taste in a bowl.

place the chicken portions a shallow glass bowl and pour lemon mixture over them. turn each portion making sure to coat evenly. cover bowl and marinate for at least 1hr at room temp. {you can also chill overnight to make for a quick dinner}
