I prefer this marinade for chicken cooked on the grill, but I'm sure it would work for roasted chicken as well.

I thought this was a good marinade although my husband said too much lemon. I marinated chicken tenders and grilled them outside. With the leftover marinade I added a more extra virgin olive oil, a tsp. of dijon and a tbl. of chopped shallot and used this as a dressing for a salad that I topped with the chicken. I thought it was delicious.

FANTASTIC! This marinade delivers amazing flavor! I used fresh herbs so I adjusted the measurements. All the spices blend together so well here and really compliment each other. I used this on some boneless skinless chicken breast and they came out so moist and juicy! Thank you for a divine recipe Wildflour!

Did a mixed grill using chicken - this recipe one of the marinades. It perfectly complimented the chicken - we really liked the flavor of the spices. I thought there might just be too much oil but that worked out just fine! Great marinade and one I have added to my collection.
