2 medium shallot(s) Shallots (cut in half, for marinade)
3/4 cup Lemon juice (for marinade)
3 tbsp Lemon peel (zest) (for marinade)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard (for marinade)
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil (for marinade)

In a large bowl, whisk shallots, lemon juice, lemon zest, Dijon mustard, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Pour into a glass 13x9-inch baking dish.

Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper and pound to even thickness, about 1/2-inch thick. Add to marinade, scattering dill sprigs on top. Refrigerate 2-8 hours, turning once.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush and oil the grill grate. Discard marinade and dill, grilling chicken breasts 5-6 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Squeeze some lemon juice over the cooked chicken and serve with a wedge of lemon.
