I love to soak chicken breasts in this marinade before grilling them.
- 1 cup olive oil
- 1⁄4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- In a small bowl, mix together all the marinade ingredients.
- Pour over lamb, beef, poultry, or fish, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before cooking.
This is a very good marinade, I used it on fish and large prawns, all the flavors came through but were not overpowering.Will definately also try it with chicken and meat. Thank you for posting this, it transferred us to a taverna somewhere in Greece for the evening!
I made it exactly as written with no substitutions. I used this for boneless, skinless chicken breasts that I grilled outside. YUM! Not only did my husband eat a chicken breast that night, but when I went to cut up some of the leftovers in the fridge, I found one breast missing 2 HUGE BITES! The leftovers are great to throw into pasta tossed with basil pesto or pita sandwiches with yogurt sauce. This is a hit in our household since the 'fridge monster' attacked the cold chicken when I wasn't looking :) Thanks for sharing!
Made this recipe as is just only half since there are only two in our household. I've only used it on chicken and Quorn Naked Cutlets(vegetarian sub.) both baked and grilled. Very easy and nice for summer.
