Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade

admin November 5, 2009

I love marinated chicken, but I never buy commercial marinades. They’re full of high fructose corn syrup and a lot of other unnecessary ingredients. This is a healthy chicken marinade.

So, I mixed up my own marinade. This is so yummy!

Recipe Collection: Chicken Marinade

It works to grill it, bake it, make sandwiches, add to salads, etc.

We eat it at least once every couple of weeks.


  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¼ cup of onion, minced*
  • 1 clove garlic, minced*
  • ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. thyme
  • ¼ tsp. sage
  • 1/4 tsp. marjoram


Mix all ingredients together, then add chicken. Marinate at least 6 hours, or better, 24 hours. Cook as desired.

*It’s not important to mince if you don’t intend to use the marinade in any sort of sauce. Rough chop is fine.

You can also add a bit of tomato juice or sauce for a bit of a different flavor. Yummy!
