3 garlic cloves

2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp lemon zest

Combine all ingredients except for the chicken in a food processor and blend. Reserve ¼ cup of marinade and pour the rest over the chicken and allow to marinate over night for best results, minimum 1 hour.

Remove chicken from marinade and rub off some of the marinade. Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill with vegetable oil before laying down chicken, once chicken is placed on grill turn heat down to medium low and close BBQ. Cook for 8 minutes on one side and then flip for another 8 minutes. Chicken is cooked when the juices run clear.
