Lemon Garlic Marinade for Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by JillAZ

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 :)
