Weber has a line of marinade mixes that you add juice to that are really, really good. They’re perfect for flavoring chicken like this lemon pepper marinaded chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy. I picked up a package of each and used them to marinate my favorite, split chicken breasts. The Lemon Pepper marinade is mixed with lemon juice to produce wonderfully seasoned chicken. A little garlicky, a little herby and a little lemony, it’s a nice light refreshing marinade.
Since it cooks at a high temperature you do have to watch that your lemon pepper marinaded chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy doesn’t char. One way to help prevent that is to not use marinades containing substances that might burn, like sugar or honey. The other is to rinse the chicken before cooking. Now, you’re going to lose a bit of flavor doing that, but if like me you’re going to remove the skin before eating, it really doesn’t make that big of a difference.
Weber makes all sorts of great flavored Just Add Juice marinades. Check out my garlic and herb marinaded chicken, and teriyaki chicken, also cooked on the Big Easy.
