The warm weather we have had here in central Indiana has been just too much of a tease lately. Every year without fail as soon as we have a few spring-like days I am telling the hubby it is time to fire up the grill. So last weekend when I was picking up my groceries and it was 70 outside, I didn't hesitate to throw a bag of lemons in my grocery cart to use in my favorite grill marinade. But now that we are getting around to doing the grilling it's closer to 30 outside; I guess that's life. I don't know the source on the recipe for the chicken. I found the recipe on a blog a few years ago, so if you recognize it please let me know. I grew up eating the Foil Packet Potatoes and there really is not an exact recipe I follow; it's all eyeballing. The Lemon Grilled Chicken always delivers super juicy, tender and flavorful chicken; you have to give this one a try! As for the Foil Packet Potatoes, they're just classic and I cannot think of one person who has tried them and not liked them. Happy grilling!

To prepare chicken: Put chicken pieces in a large Ziploc bag. Add marinade and turn chicken once or twice to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator overnight, or at least 8 hours. Bring chicken to room temperature 30 minutes before grilling and discard marinade.
