A tangy rich tenderizing marinade recipe for grilled, sauteed or baked chicken. I adapted it from a Lebanese restaurant's marinated kabobs. You will receive many many compliments!

I made a few changes... replaced most of the coriander with more cumin, used the juice and zest of one lemon, and used boneless/skinless thighs. Sliced it and made a pita sandwich with hummus and tzatziki. The results were very moist and good.

This is good-- I wasn't thrilled with it, but it was nice for something different.
