8 Chicken pieces skin-on, bone-in chicken pieces
0.5 cup Lemon Juice
3 tbsp Olive Oil
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Dried oregano leaves
1.5 tbsp Dried basil
0.5 tsp Salt
0.5 tsp Black Pepper


  1. Trim excess fat from chicken skin (this will prevent flare-ups on the grill). Make several shallow cuts in the chicken to allow marinade to infuse.
  2. Whisk lemon juice with oil, garlic powder, herbs and salt in a large bowl. Season with pepper.
  3. Add chicken and turn to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 20 min or refrigerated up to 4 hours.
  4. Preheat barbecue to medium-low. Oil grill.
  5. Remove chicken from marinade (do not discard marinade). Barbecue with lid closed, 15 min, then baste chicken with remaining marinade.
  6. Flip chicken and continue grilling, with lid closed, until chicken feels springy when pressed, 15 to 20 more min.
