Spiced-up Lemon Pepper Chicken

How do you make chicken NOT boring?
It’s an age-old question really, like; “why did the chicken cross the road?” or; “what came first, the chicken or the egg?”
Okay, it may not be age-old, but it has certainly plagued me since I started cooking for my wife and I. The problem is that those giant packs of supermarket-brand chicken breasts are just too good of a deal to pass up. Of course, when buying 4 lbs of chicken at a time, I am knowingly burdening myself with the task of making sure that we don’t get bored of chicken.
There are plenty of things that can be done with those floppy and surely plumped-up breast fillets, but seeing that it’s summer time, mine are destined for the grill. Since exhausting our taste for the store-bought rubs and sauces that lurk in the recesses of the spice rack and refrigerator door, I’ve taken to creating my own.
The following recipe is one of the latest – and tastiest of these creations.

You will need:
1/2 cup Olive oil (I use lemon-flavored Olio Dorato)
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Chicken breasts
