I’ve become a little infatuated with the Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce that my friend Margarethe introduced me to. I’ve been eating that sauce on just about everything the last few days, but this Grilled Garlic Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce were especially planned to be served together.

This is a simple marinade and you can even put chicken in the fridge to marinate when you go to bed at night, and then cook it after work the next day. The chicken is tasty, but most of all, it’s a great vehicle for delivering the sauce to your mouth!

Whisk together the lemon juice, garlic puree, poultry seasoning, and olive oil. Trim all visible fat and membranes from the chicken breasts. I save those scraps in the freezer and use them to make homemade chicken stock. Put the chicken breasts in a Ziploc bag and marinate in the fridge for 6-8 hours. (This recipe makes enough marinade for 4 pieces of chicken, but I only cooked two when I tested the recipe and took these photos.)

You can cook this chicken on a gas or charcoal grill outside, but I cooked this on a stove-top grill pan. Whichever you’re using, oil the pan or grill grates before you put the chicken on.I was going to be drizzling sauce over this chicken, so I didn’t worry about grill marks, just turned it a few times, cooking about 10 minutes, or until the chicken is firm to the touch and lightly browned.

Grilled Garlic Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce

This easy Grilled Garlic Chicken with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce is a great idea for chicken on the grill.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 T fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 T garlic puree (or minced fresh garlic)
  • 1 tsp. dried poultry seasoning
  • 4 T olive oil
  • Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce


  1. Trim all visible fat and tendons from chicken breasts, then cut small slits going down the length of each breast. (You may want to read How to Make Juicy Grilled Chicken Breasts that are Perfect Every Time for more about how to trim chicken and make slits.)
  2. Whisk together the lemon juice, garlic, poultry seasoning, and olive oil.
  3. Put chicken in a Ziploc bag or plastic container with a tight lid that’s big enough to hold chicken in a single layer.
  4. Put chicken into bag or container, pour in marinade, seal it, and turn over a few times so the marinade is coating all the chicken.
  5. Let chicken marinate in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours, or up to 24 hours if you need to start the marinating ahead.
  6. When ready to cook, remove chicken from the fridge and let it come to room temperature.
  7. Oil the grill grates or grill pan with olive oil or non-stick spray.
  8. Preheat the gas or charcoal grill or stove-top grill pan to medium-high. (You can only hold your hand there for a few seconds at that heat.)
  9. Cook chicken about 4-5 minutes on first side (you can rotate it halfway through if you want grill marks, but I didn’t bother since I was serving the chicken with the sauce over it.)
  10. Turn chicken and cook 4-5 minutes more on the second side, or until chicken is firm and lightly browned.
  11. Serve hot, with Roasted Red Pepper Aioli Sauce.

  1. Kellie, glad you like it!

  2. This Aioli is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! And my chicken is in the fridge marinating.. Can't wait to have it tonight

  3. Scientifically speaking, marinating the chicken for so long doesn't really make a difference to the taste. Actually, with the acid, it will probably just make the chicken's outer layer mushy. Try 30 minutes to an hour. We have done this marinade a couple times and marinated for 45 minutes. It is so good and juicy!! Thanks, Kalyn for a great recipe. That sauce is so tasty too. But folks, marinate for 45 minutes and don't cut the slits for best results!!

  4. So glad you liked it, and good to know that the chicken worked well baked too!

  5. I was too lazy to grill the chicken so I baked it instead (I was also cooking the Zucchini Bake w/ Feta/Thyme so it was easy). DELCIOUS. The chicken actually would have been good even without the aioli sauce but that was just a bonus.

  6. Julie, thanks for the nice feedback. I love the sound of htis with flank steak. And roasted garlic sounds good in the sauce.

  7. I have to say you never disappoint. I made the red pepper aioli sauce this afternoon and served it with your marinated flank steak recipe. Great combination. I used half regular mayo and half lite. I also drizzled the olive oil in very slowly and the sauce emulsified beautifully, thick and delicious. Next time I might try it with roasted garlic as it might make for a mellower flavor. It was a little strong for some of the family…NOT me.

  8. Rosa, thanks. I did like it very much.

  9. That dish looks totally scrumptious! What a great sauce and combo.



  10. Kryssie, so happy to hear that! I am pretty picky about the recipes I post, so I'm glad my quality control efforts are paying off.

  11. I've never posted a comment to your blog, Kalyn, but I tell everyone about it. This is, by far, the best recipe. And that's even over your egg muffins that I adore so much.

    I don't think there is a single recipe I've gotten from you that my husband has ever said, "Hon, don't make that ever again." It's always, "When can we have that again!?!" Thank you!

  12. Roz, you're so welcome, and thank you for commenting (always love to hear from people who enjoy the recipes!)

  13. Hi Kalyn,
    I've been reading your recipes for a while….and finally am making a comment. THANK YOU so much for your fabulous recipes. I've tried several, and will continue to share your blog with my friends who are all trying to eat healthy!

  14. Tobias, thanks. It was definitely tasty.

  15. Truly good looking. I love the way it is marinated.

  16. Laura, I just did a search for Simply Recipes and also clicked the link in my post and it opened fine for me. Must have been a temporary thing. Glad you like the red pepper sauce.

  17. Sorry this is off topic, is anyone else having difficulty getting to Simply Recipes? Your post links to it at the bottom, but I can't get through. I also tried just typing it in and going through google search results.

    This roasted red pepper aioli sauce recipe sounds delicious; I do plan to make it soon.

  18. Oh Roasted Red Pepper ANYTHING is divine. I am going to have to try this recipe for on of the two chickens I need to break down and cook up. Great stuff Kalyn!
