  • ¼ cup  lemon juice fresh
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce 
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper 
  • 2 tbsp fresh oregano minced (or 2 teaspoons dried oregano)
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley minced & lightly packed (or 4 teaspoons dried parsley) 
  • ¼ cup fresh basil minced & lightly packed (or 4 teaspoons dried basil)
  • 4 chicken breasts boneless, skinless (about 1 pound)


  • Combine lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in olive oil.
  • Add minced garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, parsley & basil. Whisk to combine.
  • Place chicken in a large bowl or gallon sized ziploc bag and pour marinade over chicken.
  • Refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours or up to 8 hours.
  • Heat grill to medium high heat.
  • Remove chicken form marinade and discard leftover marinade.
  • Place chicken on grill for 7-8 minutes, depending on the thickness of chicken breast. Turn and continue cooking for 7-8 more minutes until no pink remains and chicken is 165 degrees F with an instant read thermometer.
  • Allow chicken to rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.


  • I don’t recommend using bottled lemon juice. If fresh lemons aren’t available, the Italia Garden brand lemon juice is a good option. You can find it in the produce section at your grocery store.
  • This recipe is great for food prepping. Make a double batch and add leftovers to salads, sandwiches, wraps, casseroles, etc.
