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 :)
My peoples loved this. About all those great reviews. I wish somone would talk about me like that.
Made this tonight with corn on the cob, with watermelon as our side and WOW! My little picky eater ate almost everything on his plate, with a whole lot of "mmmm" to go with it. Defintely recommend to another mom. Didn't take long and food came out delicious!
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.
This was tasteless for me.. I used the listed ingredients and marinated for about 8 hours, then grilled in a grill pan. My chicken was pretty thick so it did take some time to cook. Any idea why I couldn't taste garlic nor lemon after cooking?
This was a good basic marinade. I think it would be great if I was using the chicken on a salad. I marinated it for 2.5 hours and thought it was about right. The garlic was quite prominent but I liked it.
Totally love this recipe and it's easy for someone with kitchen phobia like me. My husband even turned leftover marinade in the baggie into sauce - just melt some butter in saucepan, add the marinade, some sugar, black pepper and salt to taste. Fantastic!
I didn't like this, and followed the recipe down to a "T". All I could taste was the sour lemon and nothing to round it out or give it character. It needs an overhaul, IMHO.
Very lemony! I used a package of tenders from Costco (How much is in those? Pound and a half? Not sure...), and doubled the recipe. My garlic cloves were pretty small, so I used about 5 or 6, and I just ground some pepper into the marinade without measuring, but I'm sure it was more than 1/4 t. Threw in some dried parsley instead of fresh, and also added dried chives. Although this is super lemony, the fiance and I both liked it enough to add to the recipe box. Thanks!
Good chicken very simple and very tasty, marinated overnight.Thamks for the recipe Jill
