Lemon-Cumin-Mint Grilled Chicken

  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely shredded fresh mint leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Stir together the lemon juice, lemon oil, 1 tablespoon of the mint, half the garlic, the paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper with a fork, in a large bowl. Add the chicken and turn to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Prepare the grill. Place the chicken on the grill and cook, turning once, for about 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and just cooked through.

Transfer the chicken to a platter, garnish with the lemon wedges, sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon mint and garlic, and serve.
