Grilled Lemon Chicken:

  1. Place chicken in a large resealable bag and pound thicker portions of chicken to an even thickness using the flat side of a meat mallet. In a mixing bowl whisk together lemon juice, lemon zest, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper.

  2. Pour mixture over chicken in resealable bag, seal bag while pressing out as much excess air as possible. Move chicken around as needed to evenly distribute marinade and allow chicken to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes.

  3. Preheat a grill to moderately high heat. Brush grill grates lightly with oil and transfer chicken to grill.

  4. Grill for 6 to 8 minutes then rotate chicken to opposite side and grill until the internal temperature of chicken registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer.

  5. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes, then slice into strips about ½-inch thick.

Poppy Seed Dressing:

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sugar, apple cider vinegar, grated onion, mustard and salt until sugar has nearly dissolved. Stir in poppy seeds.

  2. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and stir. Store dressing in refrigerator.
