Grilled Chicken

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon paprika
6 skinless boneless chicken breast halves
Nonstick vegetable oil spray

Whisk first 7 ingredients to blend in 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Don't be put off by that cinnamon--it all works out. Add chicken to dish and turn to coat with marinade. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour, turning occasionally. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

Spray grill rack with nonstick spray; prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). [Or do it on George--which is what we say when we mean to use a George Foreman Grill]. Grill chicken until cooked through, turning occasionally, about 15 minutes (less on George).

Makes 6 servings.

The original recipe came from Bon Appetit magazine, June 2000. It's evolved a bit, as everything does in our household.
