Lemony Chicken

4 – 6 ounce skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 lemon zested
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 garlic clove minced


Trim any noticeable fat from the chicken breasts if needed

Whisk all but the chicken breasts together.  Place the breasts in glass or plastic container preferably with a lid.  Pour the marinade over, making sure to lift the breasts so the marinade goes underneath.  Marinate overnight, turning once or twice.

Line a sheet pan with foil.  Spray lightly.  Roast 20 minutes or until a thermometer registers 165.
