Grilled Lemon Chicken with Garlic Bread


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grates
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges, for serving
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken cutlets (about 8)
  • 4 thick slices country bread


  1. Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Mince 1 garlic clove, and place in a shallow dish. Add lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil; season with salt and pepper. Add chicken, and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature at least 5 minutes (and up to 30).
  2. Brush bread on both sides with remaining 2 tablespoons oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill bread until beginning to char, about 1 minute per side. Cut remaining garlic clove in half, and rub cut sides over grilled bread; set bread aside (discard garlic clove).
  3. Grill chicken until opaque throughout, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with garlic bread and lemon wedges.
