Favorite Grilled Chicken Marinade

This is so easy and a long time favorite. I often freeze the chicken in the marinade in a ziplock bag to cook later with excellent results. Mixture can be doubled easily.


  1. Blend lemon juice, margarine and dressing mix.
  2. Marinate chicken in mixture 4-24 hours and grill, basting with any remaining marinade.

This marinade gave the chicken a nice subtle flavor. I served it with pasta in a garlic sauce and it will definitely make its way into our normal rotation.

Fabulous recipe! Made it for dinner last night and served it with baked sweet potatoes and a mushroom artichoke vinagrette salad. The flavor was just perfect and we enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Molly.
