Grilled Lemon Chicken with Lemon Mint Sauce

I just love the Lemon flavor, it is always so fresh and just enhances the flavor of any dish. I also love the Lemon and Mint combination, it is a great flavor. We have several area's in our gardens where the mint is growing, it always smells wonderful.  The Grilled Lemon Chicken with Lemon Mint Sauce is a recipe that I developed after bringing a bunch of mint in the kitchen from the garden.  "Honey Bunny" wants to know when we can make it again, we really enjoyed it and sure hope you do too.

In a large plastic bag or a covered glass bowl mix all the Marinade ingredients
Add the Chicken to the Marinade and let set covered in the refrigerator for 2 hours
Grill the Chicken on the Grill until the internal temperature reaches 165 to 175 degrees
Remove from the grill and cover, let set for 15 minutes so the juices will set
The Lemon Mint Sauce

Garnish the Grilled Lemon Chicken with the Lemon Mint Sauce
This is a great summertime Grilled Chicken that can be served with or without the sauce and the sauce can be a dipping sauce or a dip for other meals.

 Enjoy!
