Hunk of Meat Monday: 7-Up Lemon Pepper Grilled Chicken

Once in a while I accidentally make a really great recipe. This 7-Up lemon pepper grilled chicken was just that, an accident. But, this accident can happen anytime at my house.

This grilled lemon pepper chicken marinated for two days in 7-Up and garlic. After grilling, this chicken was some of the best grilled chicken I have ever had.The problem with accidental recipes is no step by step photos because I had no intent of blogging this recipe. At all. But then my kids took one look at my chicken I had made and ditched the cheeseburgers I had made for them. Yep, they wanted my chicken I was hoping to eat off of for the next few days. And they at it all.

Maybe it was because it marinated for two days in the fridge in 7-Up and garlic. Maybe it was because I so rarely make chicken. Regardless, both kids ate it. Both of them devoured their chicken breasts between two slices of bread. Gone

After grilling, this chicken was some of the best grilled chicken I have ever had.If I were to accidentally make this all over again, I would marinade the chicken for 24 hours in 7-Up, Sprite, Sierra Mist, whatever you have on hand. Peel and smash a clove of garlic for every chicken piece you are marinading, and a teaspoon of peppercorns.

When ready to grill, I would remove the chicken from the marinade and place the garlic under the skin of the chicken. Skinless chicken I would put the garlic under one of the folds of the chicken. Seasoning the chicken liberally with lemon pepper seasoning. Grill till juices run clear.

Enjoy alone. Boneless chicken? Enjoy as a sandwich. Cut it up and through it on a summer salad. Just make this if you love grilled chicken.
