      This is the very best marinade I have ever made. I gave up on bbq chicken, it is always dry and not too tasty, unless you smother it in sauce. Not so with this marinade, tender and so much flavor. Did add 1/2 tsp. chipotle,1 tsp. sea salt, 2 fresh rosemary sticks with the fresh basil. I used 2 bone in breasts,just put them frozen in bag with, ingredients,by dinner they were prefect. Browned on high grill with pam, than indirect heat about 30 min. Tender and delish. Thank you so much Audrey.

      The marinade in this recipe gives a nice light lemon flavour to the chicken. I baked my chicken breasts in a shallow baking pan lined with non stick paper, however, I will use this recipe in the summer for cooking my chicken on the bar-b-que. A 'keeper' for us. :)
