BBQ Lemon-Garlic Chicken

lemon chicken

1 1/2 pounds chicken pieces
the juice of 4 lemons
2 tbsp lemon zest
6 crushed garlic cloves
2 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp BBQ sauce
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp sea salt

1 lemon for garnish

Mix all ingredients but chicken. Place chicken pieces in a gallon ziplock bag. Pour seasoning on top and mix well. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Take chicken out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before cooking. Heat BBQ high for 15 minutes. Lower BBQ to medium and place chicken pieces. BBQ for 6 minutes on that side. Lower heat to low and BBQ the other side for 6 to 8 minutes for chicken breast with bones and 3 to 6 minutes for smaller pieces.

Serve it with your favorite sides. For me is rice, beans and plantains
