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.
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
Perfect! Very simple, very tasty! I omitted the parsley as a personal preference, marinated overnight and grilled outdoors.
