Mom's Signature Grilled Chicken

This is almost too simple to post, but after years of trying I found my favorite way to season chicken for grilling. Once its grilled, you can use the chicken for anything: salads, quesadillas, sandwiches, calzones pizza just to name a few. I have been making a batch every week just to have it handy for lunches and quick dinners.

4 split chicken breast halves
1 lemon, zest and juice
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper

Rinse chicken and remove any fat. Place in a glass dish, and sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic. Zest lemon over chicken, and squeeze out lemon juice.  Turn chicken to make sure its coated on both sides and let stand at least 15 minutes, up to 24 hours.

Grill on on outdoor grill, grill pan, or under the broiler until cooked throughout and slightly charred.
