grilled island chicken

I always have frozen chicken around.  It is so easy to defrost some and throw it on the grill.  This marinade is really good and was so easy to make.  I use chicken tenders since they cook faster and they are easy to serve to the kids because they are smaller.

Grilled Island Chicken

1/3 cup canola oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2-4 chicken breast or 6-10 chicken tenders

1) Combine all ingredients except chicken in a bowl or plastic bag.  
2) Throw in the thawed chicken.
3) Let marinate for at least 3 hours, can also be done overnight.
4) Grill on the charcoal or gas grill, or inside on the grill  - 6-7 minutes per side for breast or 3-4 minutes per side for tenders

Serve with baked potato, green beans and a salad!
