READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by BecR2400

My husband Dan gets credit for creating this delicious marinade! Excellent with fish, also. Try it with a side of Spanish Rice Spanish Rice or my Royal Thai Rice Royal Thai Rice for a wonderful flavor combination. Recipe is easily halved. Note: Time does not include cooking the chicken.

I've been using this for several years now. It's my go-to marinade for grilled chicken. We especially love it for topping taco salad!
