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 absolutely love this recipe! It is so easy to make! I usually just saute the marinated chicken in a frying pan with no oil, just some PAM Spray. The chicken comes out so moist. I have marinated for 2 hours and even just 1 hour and it still is great. Try adding ground turmeric (an extremely healthy addition to the marinade) Turmeric is a cancer fighter, and it gives great flavor the this chicken dish! It's awesome!
