    JillAZ's Note:

    I'm not sure where I got this recipe but it is very good. I usually throw some chicken breasts in a ziploc bag and add this marinade and then freeze. All I have to do for a quick meal is thaw and toss on the grill. This makes enough marinade for about 1-1.5 pounds of chicken breasts. Cooking time reflects marinating time.

      This was incredibly easy and really delicious. I think I've made it through at least half of all of Recipezaar marinades and this is easily one of my favorites. I used four cloves of garlic, 1-2 teaspoons of cumin, and marinaded 1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast, then grilled it an hour later. The hour was just right and everything came out juicy and delicious. I will definitely make this again :)

      Very simple and quick to prepare. My substitutions (everyone subs something!) were I used about 4 1/2 tablespoons of lime juice (vs lemon), 8 large cloves of garlic and used fresh basil. Grilled it after about 2 hours of marinating. It was very citrusy, garlicky and fresh tasting. Will make again.
