Grilled Lemon Garlic Chicken

There's really no introduction needed for this recipe.  I love chicken, I love lemon, and I love garlic! And when you mix them all together, you get a mouthwatering delicious entree that the whole family will enjoy!  This dish is extremely light and healthy, and can be used as a main dish or as a topping for salads, in a soup, or even wrapped in a tortilla!  I simply love how this chicken came out, and I will definitely be making it over and over again!  I hope you and your family love it as much as mine did!  Enjoy!
