Almost Naked Grilled Chicken

This grilled chicken is almost naked, but so flavorful!  It is super simple, and perfect for topping salads or serving with rice pilaf.  I got the “no-recipe recipe” from a relative (hi Shirley!) who is one of the best cooks I know and has the best recipes.  Every time I have her chicken, I ask, “what did you season that with?” and every time she answers “just lemon juice, onion salt and pepper.”  And I say “Oh, yea, I ask you that ever time, huh?”  By making it myself tonight and writing this post, I am sure it will stay in my memory so I won’t ask her again!
  It tasted great for dinner tonight, I used it to make a Spinach Tortellini Salad and it was perfection.

Almost Naked Grilled Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 lemon
Onion Salt

~Slice lemon in half and squeeze 1/2 a lemon onto 2 breasts.
~Repeat with the other half of lemon.
~Sprinkle both sides of chicken breast liberally with onion salt and a bit of pepper.
~Let sit for at least 1/2 hour.

Can’t get much more simple than that, huh?

    I just bought some chicken and wanted to keep it simple to have on hand for topping salads and this sounds like perfection! Thank you so much, sometimes the “non-recipes” are the ones most needed
