The chicken was delish, I could eat this at least once a week! Try this recipe, you wont be sorry.
We eat this as a salad with tomatoes & other veggies. It was so good. We make 2 sets of the marinade. One to marinade the chicken, and the other to use as the dressing for our salads. The only changes I make are: cut oil to 1/4 cup, 1 tbsp minced garlic, and 1 tbsp parsley. Great recipe!
I liked it. Very nice flavor. I might add a little salt though for more.
I have made this marinade a couple of times and used it on chicken breasts. I have never marinated the full 24-48 hours (2-8 was the most I did) but it was still awesome. Thanks for the post.
Excellent chicken! I used half the amount of oil and used bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts and let mine marinate for about 10 hours. DH grilled them to perfection. The aroma of the chicken grilling must have been driving our neighbors crazy. I'm looking forward to using the leftovers for chicken wraps. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe.
What a wonderful recipe. I only had 3 hours for my chicken breasts to thaw and marinate, so I thawed them in the marinade. The flavors were so intense, but not overpowering. I can't wait for seconds tomorrow. Thanks for sharing!
My DH and I loved this! Next time I'll marinade for longer to get more of the flavor. I only got to marinade it for about 6 hours. I can only imagine how good it will be after an overnight marinade. Thank you for sharing!
I'm giving this only 4 stars mostly because of the recipe. I would have preferred to have more detail about the ingredients. Fresh lemon juice? Or is the bottle stuff ok? I assumed that all the herbs were meant to be whole and not ground (except for the pepper), but why not say that? I made the recipe exactly except that I used onion instead of shallots, I didn't have any parsley, I used only 1/3 c olive oil, and I used 2.5lbs of chicken. I used bottle lemon juice - I didn't think that the chicken was very lemony at all, so maybe fresh makes it more lemony. I probably could have doubled the recipe seeing as I was almost doubling the amount of chicken, but it came out very nice, not a ton of flavor, but a nice, tender, juicy chicken. I used my Tupperware marinator - the directions seemed so specific about using a glass dish, etc., that I figured I shouldn't use my usual standby of a ziplock bag. I did end up marinating for 48 hours. We bought some Tzatziki sauce and some pitas, and we made "giro" like sandwiches with tomato, lettuce, onion, and a little feta. I would definitely do that again.
Excellent recipe with very unique flavors!
