Grilled Lemon Pepper Chicken Sandwich Recipe FAQ

Do you put lemon on chicken before or after cooking?

You can easily put your lemon on chicken before and after cooking. Lemon can be used to create a zesty marinade to coat your chicken with before cooking. However, you can also season your cooked chicken with a splash of fresh lemon juice. 

How do you tenderize chicken?

To tenderize chicken, try marinating with acidic ingredients such as lemon juice, yogurt, or buttermilk brining in a saltwater solution, or gently pounding. Another option is velveting or using fruits with natural enzymes like pineapples, mangoes, or bananas. Enjoy tender and flavorful chicken in your dishes.

How long does it take to marinate chicken?

Marinating chicken for at least 30 minutes is recommended, but longer times or overnight in the refrigerator can enhance flavor. Quick marinating for 15 to 30 minutes is an option when pressed for time.
