This is a flavorful and light marinade that makes chicken breasts taste awesome! It can also be used on seafood; I marinate chicken for about half a day, seafood for a couple of hours. This recipe makes enough marinade for about 4 pounds of chicken or fish.
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup olive oil
- 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons dried thyme
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- Combine marinade ingredients; marinate chicken at least half a day; fish for a couple of hours.
- Bake, grill or broil as you wish.
I have two similar recipes (both of which come out completely different) one includes beer and lemon pepper in the marinade/baste, (its grilled and then basted with the same ingredients as the marinade, i just shift the ratios) and the other i used orange juice and ALOT more whorchestershire to marinate and i bake it. both ways are devine and your recipe here is SO CLOSE to the taste of the latter i had to give it 5 stars! Yummy yummy in my tummy!!!!
Too much acid, and left the chicken a bit wet.
I tried this tonight and it was delicious. I had a grapefruit that needed to be used so I used the juice from that as well as lemon juice it was a little more than a cup. Even with the chicken being forgotten on the BBQ it was still moist!!! Thanks for a great recipe
