grilled chicken marinade
Today I'm sharing with you the final recipe that I reviewed from Gooseberry Patch's latest cookbook. Remember - you can enter to win it here!
I think I mentioned before that I'm temporarily on a paleo diet. Ugh. Don't get me wrong, it's great for a lot of people. I've lost 11 pounds in the past 2 months without even trying, and it's so healthy. But it seems like all I eat is brown rice, meat, and steamed veggies. It has gotten very boring!
I was so excited to see an entire chapter on marinades in Gooseberry Patch's book. This one was so simple and has turned out to be a new favorite of mine. It took our grilled chicken to a whole new level. Whether you bake your chicken, grill it outside, or just plop it on a counter top grill like I did, you will love the flavor this marinade imparts.
Grilled Chicken Marinade
from Gooseberry Patch's Grilling and Campfire Cooking
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 T. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. dried oregano
1/2 t. dry mustard
salt to taste
1-1/2 to 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Mix together marinade ingredients. Flatten chicken slightly and place in a shallow glass dish. Pour marinade over chicken, turning to coat well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 to 8 hours. Drain, discarding marinade. Grill chicken as desired. Serves 4 to 6.
