  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions
  1. In a bowl, mix the lemon juice, olive oil, Dijon mustard, garlic, red bell pepper, salt, and pepper. Set aside 1/4 cup of the mixture to use for basting. Place chicken in the bowl, and marinate at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator.

I made this for dinner last night and it turned out exceptionally good. I left out the bell pepper since I didn't have one, and it turned out good without it. My 23 year old grandson that lives with me said it was very good. He is somewhat of a picky eater but really enjoyed the chicken. So did I! Now, what else can I use the marinade on??????????
