Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch chunks

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients. Reserve 2 tbsp of the mixture for later.
