Lemons are the world’s most popular citrus fruit. Although most deem it too tart to enjoy on its own, lemons are often used as a garnish, and their juice is used in many recipes and squirted on top of numerous seafood dishes as well as being the key ingredient for summer’s favorite drink:  lemonade. Join us in celebrating National Lemon Juice Day (August 29th) by making this grilled lemon pepper chicken.
