  • 1. Remove zest of lemon with a zester. Add zest to juice of lemon in a large bowl. Add buttermilk, Miracle Whip, salt, & pepper. Stir.
  • 2. Place chicken breasts in bowl and marinate 90 minutes to 3 hrs. Preheat grill so that one side is very hot.
  • 3. Place chicken on grill and spoon on any leftover marinade. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side. Place chicken on cooler side of grill and cook for 20 - 25 minutes with cover
  • down. Serve with fresh salad with lemon, honey, Dijon mustard and olive oil dressing. Outstanding!!


This recipe is so good you'll want to double it and eat the leftover chicken cold, mixed in a salad or in a wrap. Marinating in the lemon mixture permeates the chicken and it is lemony all the way through!
