Fantastic! Added marinade to a ziploc bag containing 4 chicken breasts with bones and skin and froze. Pulled out the night before I cooked them, and let marinate/defrost in the fridge. Baked for an hour at 350 and got the most flavorful, incredibly moist chicken. Absolutely delicious! The whole family enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This marinade is outstanding, and the quantity given here is enough for about 8 chicken pieces. When I have them in my garden, I usually use fresh herbs for this, dried work as well. I use it for OAMC cooking, as follows. Place marinade in a ziplock bag. Add chicken pieces, and coat chicken well. Remove as much air as possible, and seal the bag. Freeze. Remove from freezer 24 hours before cooking to thaw. Cook as you wish. I usually throw these on the grill.

~Nimz~ you have done it again! This is scrumptious on chicken & pork. I did add 3 cloves of minced garlic, as we bleed garlic in this house! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

Marinated cornish hens overnite with this lovely marinade. This was so perfect on the grill, the chik almost got up to run away, it was such huge hit. Once I got everyone to calm down, this produced a dramatically tender cornish hen, that was easily eaten up by all who graced the table...so tender, so juicy, there was nothing left but cleaned bones. Will use this often, thank you so much!

I really liked the taste of the chicken (I marinated for 7 hours) but it stuck to the grill and came out a bit on the soft side (not getting that firm crust on the outside that I love. If I were to make this again, I would use the oven or else add some oil to the marinade.

I marinated 8 chicken thighs for about 8 hours. I did add 1 chopped garlic, but could definately add more next time. As I always have buttermilk in my fridge, I will be doing this one again!!! Thanks for the posting!!

Marinated boneless skinless chicken breasts for about 4 hours. Turned out very moist on the grill. Very good!

I used this marinade for pork tenderloin, that I sliced. It was in the marinade overnight. I didn't have sage and marjoram and it was still delicious. The pork was so tender and tasty. Thanks Nimz. Made for 123 hit wonders.
