Lemon Pepper Chicken

I love the light, fresh taste of lemon juice in just about any dish.  In this recipe I use fresh-squeezed lemon juice as the base for a marinade for boneless, skinless chicken breasts but you could easily use this same marinade for fish as well.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half to adhere to proper portion size
The juice of one lemon
Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. garlic powder or 1 clove fresh garlic, pressed
2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil

Mix ingredients in a small bowl & pour on top of chicken (or fish).  Allow to marinate about 1 hour, covered in the fridge.  You can then cook your meat on the grill (medium high heat - approx. 5 to 6 minutes per side) or bake in the oven (30 mins at 375 degrees).
